Officials needed at all levels of high school sports

AUGUSTA, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Looking to make some extra cash, be more physically active and work with kids?  Then becoming an official might be for you.

"We are always looking for good new people to come in to the officiating business and get the training and climb the ladder to the varsity level," stated Dick Durost, executive director of the Maine Principals' Association

"Almost always there's enough officials on a board available to do the varsity games," explained Durost.   "The JV level, the freshman level, and certainly down into the middle school level, that's the training grounds.  That's where we need, across the state, new people interested in building the skills, and knowledge to go with it, and provide the training ground for those officials that ultimately do the varsity games."
