AGE 28 IS TOO YOUNG TO RETIRE

Too many high school officials are “retiring” at too young of an age—30 or younger. And often, the reason is parents and adult fans.

Think about it. Would you give up weekend evenings with family and friends to be chastised, berated and verbally abused?

There is a shortage of high school officials in our community—especially younger ones. And we need them, now more than ever. You can help address this need by showing courtesy and respect to the men and women who officiate our school’s games, even when you disagree with the call.
