We recently announced an exciting partnership with NIRSA to support the Student Officiating Development Campaign.
Now, we are excited to announce ANOTHER MAJOR INITIATIVE designed to ensure young officials are given every opportunity to launch, fuel and advance their officiating goals.
The NIRSA National Video Exchanges powered by ZOOOM are coming SOON!
It’s a brand-new product we’re developing as part of our commitment to supporting NIRSA. It leverages video, the most powerful tool for any sports official, and is designed to help you, and your Campus Recreation Department, collaborate with other Campus Recreation Professionals around the country to provide the highest level of training and education to your student sports officials.
Jason Gant, Director of Campus Recreation at Farmingdale State College and Mid-American Conference Football Referee, said, “Incorporating video into officials’ training is critical because it provides officials the visual feedback to compliment a discussion of what they saw in a previous game or what they might see in a future game.”
The NIRSA National Video Exchanges will give you all the tools you need to create the most effective, video-based, officiating training program you’ve ever had.
It doesn’t matter if your department is big, small, using video now or not, you’ll have the opportunity to instantly provide an educational experience for your student officials that will prepare them for success each time they step on the field or court.
It’s changing the way Campus Recreation professionals approach the officiating training process. And in a time where more officials are retiring and quitting, than picking up a whistle for the first time, we’ve all got the chance to reshape the future of the officiating industry. TOGETHER.
