Physical Demands
You will be constantly on your feet. A wide vision of the playing field is a must. Quick reactions and speed are advantages. As the players’ ages increase and the competitive levels increase, the physical demands will also increase.

Initial Training:
Expect lectures, demonstration and exercises on the basic rules at local association meetings.

Equipment Needs:

  • Polished, black athletic shoes, preferably cleated
  • Striped socks
  • White knickers and a black belt
  • Collared striped shirt, both short and long sleeves
  • A fitted black hat with white piping
  • Officiating tools: flags, down indicator, beanbag, information cards, pencil, whistle, lanyard, chain clip, sports watch with timer, signal card, ball pressure tester
  • Estimated cost: $225. Veteran officials sometimes have "hand—me—downs" that help new officials get started
