Referee and Umpire Management

Resources and Collection

Conferences image 1The Management Resources and Collection page is for referee and umpire managers, mentors and directors. It’s filled with contacts, ideas and links to resources for people responsible for scheduling, training and motivating sports officials. Whenever I see a unique idea in an association that could be useful to other associations, I put it on this page.

We are thrilled to offer this excellent Team Stripes Podcast to listen to while scrolling through the collection. Brandon and Shawn Corcoran talk about some of the skills and personal qualities that officiating can give to people. This is a great podcast for referees and umpires in all sports to learn the value of their work. Please enjoy!

Parental Volunteers

Amateur youth sports often have revolving doors of management teams as parents come and go. Most of the parental volunteers move through the system with their kids and eventually return to their normal lives. This collection can give new management teams some insight into the challenges they will be facing. Have no fear though, because it can also offer solutions to those challenges.

It might seem like you and your association are the only ones struggling to solve your particular problem. I can assure you that you are not alone and many others have faced these same challenges before. Associations across all sports have issues of recruitment, training and management of referees and umpires. This page attempts to help address those common issues. I hope it helps!

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!
