Officials, many of which are volunteers, play a critical role in young athletes achieving their goals and dreams. The USSA sanctions over 4,000 individual competitions annually and provides an educational system for over 5,600 USSA officials. Those competitions would not be possible without the time from those dedicated officials and other competition volunteers.
This section of ussa.org provides information for those wishing to get started, as well as valuable resources for existing officials in all USSA sports.
Officials ensure that USSA competitions run efficiently and fairly by the rules. They are responsible for the safe conduct of the event and the accurate timing, judging and scoring. They also play a key role in ensuring that the spirit of the sport and competition is maintained.
In the end, officials are responsible for providing the best possible experience for USSA athletes.
