Have you ever wanted to help your schools athletic department and help kids become better ladies  and gentlemen. We have a great idea for you.  PICK UP A WHISTLE.  Licensed officials can earn anywhere from $50 to $100 a night depending on the sport and type of contest.  If you have an interest or know of someone who does, please see the link below .

Pick Up a Whistle!     The officiating community is a welcoming fraternity and the unsung heroes of interscholastic athletics.  New officials that join the St. Joseph Valley Association are mentored and offered professional development opportunities.  If unwilling to give officiating a try, please consider your reluctancy to do so when attending an athletic contest and you disagree with a call.  Contest officials deserve our appreciation and respect.  Support them just like the team you are there to watch.
