    Officials

    A shortage of sports officials is reaching a critical stage. The Permian Basin is no exception. Many factors have contributed to the decline in officials. More teams, more games, more schools, the oilfield boom, all have led to the shortage. Many people are finding it difficult to handle more demanding jobs while continuing to officiate on the side. Another factor leading to the shortage is the retirement of longtime officials. The shortage is not sports specific or Friday night specific. There are hundreds of games at every level that need officiating. There are many games and many young people that need you. Your sport needs you!

     

    There are many reasons to become an official:

     

     
     love sports
     opportunity to stay involved
     opportunity to give back to the community
     give back to the sport
     physical conditioning
     camaraderie and friendships
     additional money
     being a part of something vital
     

     

    If you have an interest in sports or young people, officiating is for you.

    Take a few moments to contact one of the leaders in the officials’ chapters listed below. They will do whatever it takes to help you get started. They will find a place for you, give you the training you need and will assign you to games that will work you into the system.
