What's the rate for first round of playoffs? Best guess at average game fees that you have seen from the conferences and schools you have been to?

Not necessarily. Not all payments are by a conference rate. Some schools pay more than others or do not assign games by a conference. Even tournaments can be vastly different.

I'm curious where you got your numbers. For Iowa, it varies in the big class (4A) depending on conference. In the Des Moines metro, the 4A conference (CIML) pays $115 for V doubleheader. I've heard on the east side of the state (MVC and MAC) it's closer to $135. No mileage reimbursement until tourney time, then the fees go down and the mileage pay goes up.

(IL) In the suburban Chicago area, it generally ranges from $65 - $82. No mileage. First rounds of playoffs are $72 (state wide)

Northern VA rates are $86 for varsity (3-person); $71 for sub-varsity (2-person).

In Iowa, playoffs are $65/game + mileage. It's somewhere in the neighborhood of $.40 per mile for travel.

I searched each states athletic association website. If I couldn't find the officials fees listed there I emailed a secretary or assignor for the area. A few of the numbers were past years as that is the only handbook or list I could find.

Twin Cities (MN) metro area:

Single Varsity (3-person): $81-84
Single Non-varsity (2-person): $58-60

Varsity/JV doubleheader (usually 3-person, although sometimes we have 2 for the JV and a 3rd joining us for the varsity): $111-116.

Varsity doubleheaders are $150ish, I think... I've never worked one, and they don't happen often.

We do not get paid mileage, except for playoffs. For playoff games, we get one mileage allowance for the entire crew. I'm not exactly sure what the per-mile rate is, since I never received it (all of my playoff games last spring were within 10 miles of my house, so I gave the mileage to my partners).

Where in Ohio do varsity officials working 3-man get $80? Here in the Columbus area we get $68 (no mileage).

Interesting. It's fun to read through these and see what different areas of the country are getting. I'd be curious to see what the lower end of these numbers are for more rural areas and smaller schools. For small school, I did a game last year with no travel reimbursement that was about an hour and 45 min away that paid $85 for a varsity doubleheader. We usually only get one of those a year, as our assignor is very good about trying to keep us within 60 miles. In fact, I only have one game >60 miles away this year, and it will be a great game between two teams that are traditionally solid programs.

Absolutely, I think that it is good to give a bit of clarity to the independent contractors and I know that there is monthly grumbling at meetings about the pay in our areas.

One surprise to me has been when the states very by conference or district especially when they are so close. We are so short officials in our area you can work as many games as you want literally 6 days a week, everyday but Sunday. If I was located near two districts that paid different, I would only work in the higher paying district. I'm sure that is not the reality but it seems like it would make it difficult for smaller or lower paying schools to get quality officials and fill there schedules, especially with the national shortage of officials.

Another large difference that is coming to light is mileage. Ranges from nothing to full .50/mile reimbursement make a large difference in your take home check at the end of the night.

One interesting thing I heard the other day is one of those smaller schools that used to pay like $80 for a V doubleheader recently changed their pay because nobody wanted to go there. They pay somewhere in the neighborhood of $130 now for a V DH.
