Since becoming HoH I have noticed how much work the Quidditch captains put into their role. Between organizing practices and tryouts, answering (a lot) of prospective owls, making sure that the line up is submitted before the game, and teaching players how to play, I really think they are deserving of a pay and possibly a color on the jobs list.
From where I stand, it's clear that they put in a lot to their role. During a game week, their work load can take up to 8+ hours a week.
My suggestion is as follows:
1) 20 galleon a week pay, similar to other student jobs
2) A spot on the job list with a color
3) Head of Houses would supervise the role. When a captain is selected, they would be in charge of "officially" hiring them through administration.
The only problem I foresee is if a captain already has another student job. However, in this situation it would give students a new position to look forward to and get excited about. There would need to be rules created about having one job/one color to make this work.
I look forward to hearing your thoughts.
