Drop out from the amateur officiating ranks is a persistent, pervasive, and global problem. Annual attrition rates of up to 20-30% in most sports require an ongoing investment of time, effort, and money in recruiting and training new officials. Understanding what motivates individuals to enter into officiating roles, as well as the critical role of perceived organizational support in keeping them involved, underpins successful officiating programs. This webinar, presented by Dr. Lori Livingston and Dr. Susan Forbes, examines the problem and makes evidence-based recommendations on how to implement successful officiating recruitment, development, and retention initiatives. This webinar is available in English only.
