Sports Officials Care

About Us

Sports officials have been giving back to the community for years but never before have referees and umpires from all levels of sports come together with the combined goal of making a difference.

In 2006 MLB Umpires started their own non-profit, and soon, officials from other leagues took notice. Small conversations turned into bigger ones, and now, a collective effort is underway to make a greater impact.

With a shortage of officials in all sports and the rise of physical and verbal abuse, officials know the time is now to strengthen and inspire the next generation of sports officials and to make positive change in the community.

There is a saying that teamwork makes the dream work, and Sports Officials Care is all about that mantra – making the right call in the officiating community and the community at large.

Our Mission

The Mission of Sports Officials Care is to inspire, educate, and unite sports officials at all levels with the common goal of giving back and creating positive change in the world of sports and in the community.
