We hire student officials for basketball, broomball, flag football, floorball, futsal, ice hockey, lacrosse, soccer, softball, and volleyball. No experience? No problem. We offer extensive training for officials and scorekeepers.




The Badger Student Officials Association (BSOA) is a student organization dedicated to helping members become the best officials in their respective sports. We host monthly meetings where we discuss sport rules, case plays, and upcoming events. We also secure various opportunities off campus, allowing our officials to further develop and utilize their skills out in the community.

If you need officials for an upcoming event or are interested in joining the organization, please contact the BSOA Executive Director at
