East Carolina University boasts one of the finest sports officials development systems among university intramural sports programs in the nation. Former participants in the program include division I college officials, numerous high school officials, and countless others that work in various recreation leagues. The training clinics, conducted by highly qualified professional and student staff, will provide you with the needed knowledge, philosophy, mechanics, and human relations skills to perform the job effectively. There are very few student positions that involve the challenging mix of responsibility, leadership, decision-making, athleticism, and public relations skills that are necessary in sports officiating. In addition, ECU offers opportunities to become involved with high school officials associations, local community recreational leagues, and a number of exciting off-campus extramural events in various parts of the nation.
