Online Evaluation Forms:

All Varsity Level officials should be evaluating the sub-varsity officials working the game before theirs. The online evaluation forms have been updated to include the newest officials and recent transfers. However, if you find a name is missing, contact the webmaster to have the name added.

The evaulations are not intended to be a place to criticize, but a means to offer constructive "advice" intended to make the sub-varsity official(s) better. Remember, we all were 'new' officials at one time and needed the guidance of our fellow, veteran officials to improve. Pass it on!!

Gretchen Wolf Swartz Sportsmanship Award:

Once again this year, the Gretchen Wolf Sportsmanship program will be awarding $100,000 worth of scholarships to student athletes. Each of you should be keeping track of the school(s) who best exhibit sportsmanship in their overall programs. From players and coaches to staff and fans, sportsmanship involves the "whole package".
