Howdy ... 

Welcome to the Social Ref, a simple home for recreational officials. We hope you find the best ideas and techniques, that others have already learned.  

The Book is Finally Here!

The Book is Finally Here!

2 Years Flies By!

Welp, after reffing for 20 years and writing for 2.5, i think reffing and umping is definitely easier that being an author.

The book is now live for sale: https://geni.us/SocialRefBook

Grab one on Amazon for that special someone who loves yelling at the TV, but really should step up and be a referee or umpire.

And thanks to all the folks along the way who provided advice, encouragement, and tough love to get this thing done. We hope it helps a lot of people out there make it through their first 15 games.

Keep an eye out for the Social Ref video program, and the audiobook, in the near future.
