The Oregon Athletic Officials Association and the Oregon School Activities Association are recruiting officials for the high school spring sports seasons with an immediate need for umpires in baseball and softball, the organizations announced.
OAOA Executive Director Jack Folliard said becoming a high school official has several benefits, such as staying involved in athletics, maintaining good physical condition and earning money.
“Oregon has an urgent need for officials in all sports,” Folliard said through a press release. “Officials provide valuable service to high schools and students, make a positive impact in the community and build relationships.”
Information on becoming a baseball or softball umpire are asked to visit www.newofficials.org. Candidates can fill out a form online and the nearest local officials association will reach out to begin the process.
