In case you are not fan of social media (and many of our members share your sentiment), a majority of our updates concerning upcoming tournaments, new accounts, or general posts concerning officiating will be copied here within a few hours of their original posting on our Facebook page.  

 

We still encourage you to "Like" and "Follow" our Facebook page to get these posts as soon as they come in and to participate in the many excellent discussions we share with other members and referees nationwide.  We also have a YouTube channel in development and our founder, Chris Balasinski, maintains a Instagram account that is not solely about officiating, but offers a glimpse into the private life of our busy assignor. 

The Gray Fox Response to the Referee Shortage

May 25, 2017

It's becoming a numbers game. And albeit its a worrisome one, we can and should use it to our advantage. With so many games and not nearly enough quality officials, why work for club programs and pay-less assignors that lowball your rates and do not have your back when an issue arises? Officials should be united towards common interests like improving working conditions and better pay. A better work environment will then attract more prospects and our numbers will go back to where shortages are no longer a problem.
