We also hire work study positions; if you qualify for Federal Work Study, go to the Human Resources web site and apply for the job titled 'Recreation Assistant'.
Campus Recreation employs students in the following areas:
The Group fitness instructors complete the mentorship training program along with receiving certification or participate in class specific workshops to further their experiences. Our personal trainers are all nationally certified and in pursuit of their kinesiology or health promotion degrees.
The UW Intramural Sports Program offers paid work opportunities for officials, supervisors, and office assistants. Application forms are available in the Intramural Sports Office, Half Acre 206. Previous experience as an official is desired, but not required. Training clinics are offered before the start of each sport in order to teach the required skills. None of these employment opportunities prevents participation on a team.
