The Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association (the PIAA) has announced a new Junior Officials program that allows students to become officials in hopes of swelling the lagging ranks of referees and umpires for school sports. Executive Director Robert Lombardi says that it has been difficult to have enough officials to cover every athletic competition in the state. The Junior Officials Program allows students as young as 16 and 17 to become PIAA sports officiants. The main reason interscholastic sports officials resign is due to abuse and harassment from parents and coaches.
