Athletic Directors having little problems finding referees for high school contests

By Connor Harbit

 

Despite problems across the United States in retaining and contracting referees, Door County athletic directors have said they haven’t had many problems in making sure their bases are covered for the winter season. In the Packerland Conference and other conferences across the state, all varsity contests are contracted before the season by outside parties. Southern Door Activities Director Korey Mallien said that only games added late to the schedule, particularly junior varsity games, posed any problem for him.

 

 

 

 

Mallien also noted that most referees in the area seem to be middle-aged, something that Sturgeon Bay Athletic Director Todd Meikle said he remedied by recruiting close to home.

 

 

 

 

Something both Meikle and Mallien both alluded to was the sometimes difficult task in getting volunteers to help with other game day tasks.
