Track and field meets, at any level, need a lot of officials. Whether they be huge international time trial events, or high school grudge meets, require dozens of timers, judges and decision makers. The pressure is high as times are measured down to the smallest increments possible. Dreams are made and broken by millimeters in the blink of an eye. Some of these athletes have Olympic goals so every measurement is a crucial addition to their records. The officials must be highly trained, well prepared and extremely focused to get every decision correct. It is a tough job, and I take my hat off to all of you.

There are over 100 pages of referees and umpires across the website, highlighting dozens of sports. The site was created using over 10,000 Twitter posts and retweets. Plus, we added hundreds of links, videos and podcasts from around the world. Providing easy access to education, entertainment and important information to sports officials of all stripes. Thanks for visiting today. We hope to see you again! Have an excellent day!
