TEAM UP WITH QUALIFIED OFFICIALS!

OFFICIAL FINDERS trains our officials so they are ready to work your games!

Hiring Sports Officials in Northern IL and Northwest IN?

While your organization is cultivating the next generation of MLB, NFL, and MLS stars, Official Finders is equipping a new generation of sports officials in Northern Illinois and Northwest Indiana. If you’ve ever wondered how to find officials in IL or needed to hire an official in IL, you’ll appreciate how our schedulers simplify the process of finding the highest quality officials for your amateur sporting events, providing you some well-deserved peace of mind.

What is Official Finders?

We’ve served the needs of youth sports organizations in Northern IL and Northwest IN since 2009. While our sports officials are the backbone of our organization, we know that it takes more than that to ensure the game day goes off without a hitch. 

 

So even though we certainly invite you to call us when you need officials for baseball, softball, basketball, flag football, volleyball, soccer, dodgeball, field hockey, and kickball, we would remind you that we offer far more than that. The same phone call will also take care of any scorekeepers, hall monitors, and concessions workers you may need and will ensure you have competent, professional staff who show up on time, ready to give their best.

2. Everything — Yes, EVERYTHING — You Need In One Place

When time and money are tight, why waste resources on comparison shopping? We ensure that the support staff you need is within easy reach. We take care of discounted sports equipment, tournament scheduling, and other challenges you may face, and even payment to our contractors is taken care of seamlessly so you don’t have to worry.

 

3. Reliable Officials

All refereeing training classes have been completed well in advance, and all terms and conditions will be disclosed up-front.
