    There is a tremendous need for new softball officials. We will work to insure that you
    begin your career at a level where you are comfortable - whether it is school games or
    recreation softball. OHSAA has targeted recruiting Minorities and Females into the
    officiating ranks and while most students have typically been adults, OHSAA regulations
    now allow high school students of all ages to participate in these classes.

    NEW FOR 2019!!
    Any person 18 and under that signs up for the class will be
    sponsored by a private Non Profit company. After the student completes the course
    and works at least 5 regular season games during the 2020 OHSAA Season, the student
    will receive $100 back per the sponsorship.
