I am doing a paper for school and I need to know on average what an Inline Hockey Director salary is. I just need some numbers if anyone know.

This might not help you much because I'm the Inline Hockey Director of a youth program at Park District outdoor facility, not a Director at a private rink. Therefore, I make less than I would if I pursued a private sector position.
That being said. I get paid $11.00 per game. The larger my program the more money I get. I also have power skating camps, an adult league, developmental programs, and learn to skate programs. These programs, I make about 75% of what comes in. I'm not in this to make money, so I don't charge as much as I could get. Again, the more skaters, the more money. I'll let you do the math.
Hope this helps a little. If you have any other questions let me know.

I make about $36,000 per year. But I do more than just organize leagues.

I work for the local Parks & Recreation Department, with the section-level assignment of operating the inline hockey programs. This includes every job at a rink imaginable...I make 36k in a local job market that is decidedly deflated from most major cities. This job pays 45-55K in L.A. and 70-75K in N.Y.C., for example. It requires a college degree, and a number of years of "working your way up..." as the person incharge of a municipal program, I have no financial incentives to make league decisions...I can make decisions based on what is good for everybody and the sport itself. Our league has grown each year (for the 7 of its existence)...our league fee is $80/year, for over (get this) 200 games of hockey. We skate four 3-month seasons.We play on sportcourt, athletica dashers, daktronics scoreboard, the whole thing. I am lucky enough to work for a city that believes inline hockey players deserve a top class place to play just as much as baseball, football, soccer, volleyball, basketball players, etc. I daresay that, as more municipalities follow our lead, less and less development in our sport will depend on the profit motive. I have already put every private rink, and the Y's, out of the hockey business. I guess that was more than you wanted, but you didn't specify background would be helpful...

There are two different ways that rinks will run the Hockey Directors salary. One of them is to simply hire them and there salaries were already discussed in this thread. The other way is to pay a commission to the league director. This is motivation for a person to go out and get more players and teams. 10% of the league fee is what my friend used to get. If you fill up all available slots and have many teams, the more you make. However, the venue is key in that situation and sometimes teams will up and stop playing or move to another rink with no notice. This often happens to well run leagues were either the competition is too good, or too poor for some teams. But you have to concider the more effort you put into it, the more cash you get back in return. Plus scheduling refs, doing the schedule, messing around with all the different teams requests, youth and adult programs, etc, etc, etc is sometimes way too hard for one person to handle alone.

While I was in college, I took on a position with a prominent company that owns and operates fitness clubs up and down the east coast. I was considered the "Corporate Inline Hockey Director" and in charge of spearheading inline hockey programs at any of the clubs we took over that featured hockey rinks.
I was paid $15/hr flat, and it was a part-time position. The work was fun, I was in charge of coming up with solutions to market and attract youth to our programs from competition, and it worked for the most part. But I eventually moved on to a job more suited to my career.
