NFHS, Other Sports Leaders to Address Officials Shortage at Second NFHS Officials Consortium

The gathering is happening in Indianapolis this week

More than 75 leaders from about 50 sports organizations will converge in downtown Indianapolis Jan. 26-28 during the NFHS Officials Consortium 2.0 at the Conrad Hotel to continue tackling a nationwide shortage of sports officials.

This second consortium serves as a follow-up to the first NFHS Officials Consortium held last April when a similar group of leaders came together to discuss practical solutions. 

"It is an honor to continue to collaborate with sports organizations and entities from across the country and at all levels of sport to work together to recruit and retain officials, and to make the sport atmosphere better for all involved," said Dana Pappas, NFHS director of officiating services. "We are bringing some new players to Consortium 2.0 to help us spread our message so we can develop a consistent vocabulary within the sport environment with regard to behavioral expectations from youth sports to high school sports and beyond."
