2023-24 OHSAA Officials Appreciation Week

Officials Appreciation Week

Fall Sports: October 1-7, 2023
Winter Sports: January 7-13, 2024
Spring Sports: April 14-20, 2024
The OHSAA is celebrating our contest officials for their hard work and dedication. Mark your calendars the week of October 1-7, 2023, for OHSAA Fall Sports Officials Appreciation Week. Additional appreciation weeks will take place January 7-13 for winter sports officials and April 14-20 for spring sports officials.
With the intense scrutiny of our officials contributing to a nationwide shortage of officials, we believe it is important to show our appreciation and respect for these men and women who give their time to our student-athletes so they can play the games they love and contribute so much to the overall experience our student-athletes receive while participating in educational athletics.
We ask that athletic administrators read an OHSAA-provided script before ALL games during the week as well as use your social media accounts to show your appreciation. Please tag @OHSAASports on Twitter and show us what your school is doing to show our officials love.
Thank you in advance for your participation, and we look forward to a great week of celebrating our officials!

Respect the Game

Created in 2004, the Respect the Game program was the culmination of the OHSAA's Sportsmanship, Ethics and Integrity Committee along with ideas and input from administrators, coaches and student-athletes across Ohio.
