Online course available for high school referees

Online course available for high school referees
The National Federation of State High School Associations has officially launched its Interscholastic Officiating Course.
The online course is the “first-of-its-kind” in a series of officiating courses from the NFHS, and is designed to introduce new officials or individuals interested in becoming an official to the world of interscholastic officiating. The course covers topics such as the basics of becoming and staying an official, the science of officiating a contest, the art of officiating a contest and putting it all together.
“The course gives aspiring officials some of the general tenets involved in the avocation,” said Mary Struckhoff, former NFHS director of sports and officials education who continues to serve as a consultant. “Therefore, we believe it will better prepare individuals to have successes on the court, field or mat.”
