To meet the challenge of officiating. As an official, you have to deal with stress and pressure and make split-second decisions.
Are you qualified and able? Officiating is a very demanding avocation.
Are you physically fit? You are constantly moving and work outside in the elements. It can be very hot, very cold, or raining.
Are you emotionally fit?
Do you take criticism well?
Can you stay calm under pressure?
Can you commit time to officiating? During the season, many times you will need to be off work before 5:00. You will also need to dedicate time to studying the rules both during the season and during the off-season to fully understand them.
