For over 20 years, NIRSA’s Student Officials Development program has been raising the bar for college and university student officials training.
Dedication to keeping it fair
NIRSA’s program has a long history of serving as a high-quality source of well-trained officials. This training provides a grassroots solution to the shortage of young officials from the community and local levels, all the way up to the elite levels of college, and professional competition.
Through in-game training experiences, students learn to make real-time calls while shadowing experts. Students learn to officiate across multiple sports, as well as develop expert command of the rules and regulations in a specific sport.
