2nd Star


Chelsea Roffey is the first female to become a goal umpire in the Australian Football League. This week she took some time out to talk about her life as an umpire and share her challenges and triumphs while paving the road for future female umpires to participate in Australia biggest sport. For sharing and encouraging the umpires of the future, Chelsea Roffey get 2nd Star this week.



1st Star


I prefer to choose people for the 1st Star position but sometimes we need to make adjustments. Wednesday was International Women’s Day and the 101 search feeds were loaded with great links shining the spotlight on female referees and umpires all over the world. It was a fascinating day filled with stories and recognition of the women who are charging forward and creating opportunities for young girls to play and officiate in all sports. There were too many posts that day to choose one single lady who stood out more than any others, so the 1st Star this week goes to the Female Referees and Umpires in all sports. Thank you for all you do!

2017 3 stars Week 09


  1. Anne Panther Basketball Referee
  2. Alan Baser Sailing Umpire
  3. Best Parking Spots

These are the 3 Stars selected for this week. Maybe you agree and maybe you don’t, but read on below to find out why they were chosen. Stay tuned next week to find out who are the most notable referees, umpires and sports officials in the world today.


3rd Star


This post extolling the benefits of becoming a referee made me laugh out loud. A little stoic cynicism is almost a job requirement for sports officials. This job perk of having a Reserved Parking spot is called ‘living the dream’ to most referees and umpires. In reward for the laugh, getting The Best Parking Spot gets 3rd Star for the week.



2nd Star


Alan Baser is an Olympic class sailing umpire and judge who has been working hard to share his experiences with potential umpires of the future. As one of the #RefsofRio group, Officials101 has been following Baser’s career and for this latest success at raising the profile of sailing umpires and sharing his story, Alan Baser gets 2nd Star for Week 09.



1st Star


Anne Panther is the only female referee in EuroLeague Basketball. Making it to the top levels as an official in any sport is a challenge that requires a lot of hard work and dedication. For the women who are breaking down barriers in the male dominated sports world, Anne Panther is a leader, a beacon of hope for young girls who are fighting the good fight, and this week’s #1 Star.
