I went through the same experience as a young official. Weekends and weekday "off" nights. Worked for many different assigners other than my high school assigner. Youth recreation, travel, mens league, Catholic middle schools, etc. Did it for a few reasons: experience, "networking", but primarily for the money. Mortgage, car payments, young family, lots of financial responsibilities (back when teachers in Connecticut were not well paid). It was a great feeling when I was able to give up most of that to just do scholastic games, and eventually just work for my high school assigner.
