THE FUTURE OF OFFICIATING STARTS HERE.

Whether you’ve got 5, or 5,000 members, ZOOOM App, is what you need to enhance your video training and education programs!
We are a proud NASO Education Partner, a NIRSA Associate Member, and we’ve partnered with more than 100 officiating organizations around the world who understand what it takes to get better!

We’ve been named an NASO “Gamechanger” every year since 2014 (2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019)!
We can help you, your Association and your Intramural Department. 

Our platforms were designed by working with some of the most brilliant minds in the sports industry; individuals who have reached the pinnacle of their careers in the NBA, NFL, and throughout major collegiate sports. By learning what helped them reach the top, we created the technology you need to do the same.


Our goal is to help officials, in all sports, use video to get better. Intramural programs and Associations can easily create and share training videos, You Make the Call plays, and weekly points of emphasis, in seconds. Deliver a consistent training message to all your officials, provide educational materials to use in meetings and clinics, find out if plays are being called the way you want them called, and connect with your officials to get them the training they need.

ZOOOM App has all the tools you need to Officiate, Evaluate, and Elevate like the pros.


Slide 2

"Officiating skills are improved in every sport by reviewing and breaking down video. Recall is vital for successful officials - our ability to pull plays up thru mental replay, then apply it to the action on the field or court is the goal.

With technology we can learn from other officials experience and like fast forwarding video; we can fast forward our learning experiences. Video review reinforces what you are doing right and provides an opportunity to SEE what needs to be improved."
