There are a lot of reasons to officiate for Silbo. If you’re interested in joining our community of sports officials and having access to more game opportunities, follow these steps.
1. Download the Go Silbo app.
2. Complete your profile information on the app.
Think of your profile like a job application. We need to get to know you before we can approve you to work games.
The last four digits of your SSN are required for tax and payment purposes. Like your payment information, this is kept secure.
3. Complete your payment information on the app.
Silbo pays all of our officials via direct deposit. Your payment information is only used to pay you for working games, never to charge you.
Silbo never stores any of your account info on our servers. All account information is stored on Stripe’s servers. Stripe is a secure third party payment system trusted by many large companies including Google, Amazon, and Lyft.
If you prefer, you can skip filling in the payment information until later. Just make sure to complete it before working your first game so we can pay you.
4. Get verified.
You can either wait for a Silbo team member to call you (typically we call everyone within 3 business days) or you can schedule a call through the link in the app. To speed up the process, upload a picture of your certification. This can be a training certificate, a high school certification, or an officiating schedule.
You won’t be able to see any games in the app until you complete your verification. We need to confirm which sports you’re trained to officiate and at what level before you can start officiating with us.
5. Select games.
Once you’re verified, you’ll be able to see games in your area that you’re qualified to work. Silbo doesn’t assign games, you get to select the games that you want to work so make sure to actively add yourself to games you want to officiate. If a game you want to work is filled, join the waitlist and you’ll be the first to know if it opens up.
