Shortage of Officials hits everyone

Nevada Looks To Recruit Officials For High School Sports
 
As the 2015 football season prepares to kick off, high schools across Nevada face a threat to their athletic programs – a lack of officials to work their games.

"We haven't had a real influx of young officials in the last half a dozen years that's probably the biggest reason we're falling short these days," Beesemyer said.
 
He said the organization isn't really asking why it is happening it is just trying to find the officials it needs for football, volleyball and soccer this fall.
 
Beesemyer cited surveys of officials that pointed to their treatment by fans, parents, coaches and players as the reason so many referees leave, but he believes that is just part of the job and part of the challenge.

A vote of 51 percent in favor of the move is needed to form a union.

The PIAA on Friday filed an appeal to the NLRB to review the decision of the regional director, Nancy Wilson, who made the ruling.
