Any refs out there?

Curious to know if there are any Camaro owners out there that are part-time or full-time sports officials? I, myself am a basketball official. I officiate youth leagues, mens' leagues, and am also a UIL high school official.

Show some love to the refs! We do it for the love of the game and for the kids...

Ahhhh Yeahhhhh!!! The Mid-America Youth Basketball (MAYB) Texas State Tournament is going on this weekend in San Antonio, Texas. I'll be officiating 20 (YES, Two-Zero) basketball games this Friday, Saturday, and Sunday for the 9th-10th Grade Girls' Division.
Needless to say....I will be very tired after this is over!!

Watch those travels. There is no NBA pro-hop in 9th grade.

Thanks! Yep! I know what you mean about the "hop skip" or "bunny hop" as I've heard it called at times. Good thing this time is that the girls don't do as bad as the boys do. These youngsters are coming out with way too many street ball moves!

It's weird that when I watch a basketball game on television, whether it's NBA, WNBA, NCAA, or High School, I'm always checking out the officials and critiquing their calls, mechanics, etc.

I used to ref for hockey games, had some fun times. It's a lot harder than people think though, especially in hockey where you can get hit with a random flying puck at any given moment.

Yeah, I think I'll stick to basketball, where it is a little more safe. I've considered doing football at the high school level, but for now, basketball it is.

Though I haven't done it in a few years, I umpired baseball for about 6 years. Did it for a youth baseball league, was umping on weekends and playing in games during the week.
