Work with Urban Rec

What do EVENT HOSTS do?

Event Hosts’ roles and responsibilities are to supervise and monitor play in our leagues and tournaments as well as facilitate a positive and social atmosphere. You must be outgoing, social and energetic. You must know your sport really well, and feel confident in teaching the rules, and in most cases have access to carry a kit bag with gear. 

Most Event Hosts work one night per week, per season (although some work 2 or more nights). For every night that you host,  you receive a free night of play in one of our other leagues. Most leagues run 10-13 weeks depending on the weather, and anticipated rain outs. Event Hosts may not play on the same night which they work on.
