BE PART OF SOMETHING GREATER
With a focus on safety, physical activity and social growth, our Youth Sports Officials provide youth with a safe, supportive and fun environment to learn and develop sports skills.

Youth Sports Official positions are for everyone!  They are a great opportunity for a high schooler looking to earn extra spending money and college students pursuing a career in sports management or working with youth.  And they are a great way to supplement full-time income or come back to working, while staying active and engaged with the youth in your community. Responsibilities include but are not limited to:

  • Objectively and competently officiating the assigned sport.
  • Professionally and positively guiding spectator, coach and participant’s physical and verbal behavior.

Our Officials are enthusiastic about their work because they have discovered the joys of helping kids find success in sports, stay physically active, and build positive self-esteem and self-worth.  Plus, they also enjoy:

  • A fun and engaging work environment where friendships are made
  • Flexible schedules
  • Room to grow
  • Free Y membership at all YMCA of Lincoln locations for qualified staff
  • Future employers respect the Y – build your resume

THIS IS WHY

“Having the opportunity to be on the field with the kids personalized the value of the Ys mission for me.  When kids play Y sports they develop more than skills – they develop character.  As a YMCA Youth Sports Official, I can serve as a positive role model for these kids.” - Matt
