Being an athlete is not the only way to experience the thrills of a sports game first-hand. Referees and sports officials usually spend more time in the field or in the arena than athletes themselves and are often just as instrumental to the outcome--and enjoyment--of a game. Pursuing a career in sports officiating requires a love of the sport, an eye for detail, and patience, among a host of other qualities. This exciting volume details the keys to ensuring fairness, safety, and sportsmanship on the field and the skills required to become a successful sports official.
