Sports Officials

Posted: 10/15/2023

The City of Keene’s Parks and Recreation Department is looking for fun, friendly, energetic workers to join their team of Sports Officials for any or all leagues beginning this Fall and continuing until Spring 2024!  You can have a fun job that allows you to earn a paycheck and make a difference for the people in your community!  Leagues tend to be more instructional and friendly rather than super competitive.  Pay rate for Scorekeepers is $10/game and $25/game for Referees.

Duties for Referees include calling the rules of the game and keeping the games moving in a positive manner.  Duties for Scorekeepers include keeping the official scorebook and score clock of all games.

Both positions will act as a liaison between the Recreation Department, parents and volunteer coaches as well as help sweep the court/fields in between games of any trash and help return the space used back into playable conditions.

Seasonal employment depends on the sport. Basketball runs November-February, Monday- Thursday evenings and Saturday mornings.  Indoor Soccer runs March-April, Monday and Wednesday evenings.  Soccer runs April-May, Monday-Thursday from 5:30pm-6:30pm.  Flag Football runs April-May, Monday-Thursday from 5:30pm-6:30pm.   

All applicants aged 18 and older are required to pass a Criminal Background Check.  Scorekeepers must be age 14 or older!

We have multiple openings running from this Fall through Spring 2024 so please spread the word!  Applications will be accepted until positions are filled.  Apply today!
