Become a sports official: Officiating teaches independent thinking and the ability to see the big picture — a skill that translates outside of officiating. If you love sports, you will have the best view of the game as an official. More importantly, officiating will teach you how to view the games in a whole new light – one that emphasizes fairness, integrity, decisiveness, and sound judgment.
