Football officials for youth and high school are needed and two clinics are coming up to help newcomers receive training.
The first clinic, for high school football officials, is Saturday at Grizzly Creek Ranch near Portola. Contact Brian Dziminski at email@example.com for more info.
A clinic for Pop Warner officials is Aug. 21 in Washoe Valley. For information on that clinic, contact Chris Whitbeck at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Whitbeck said there were about 20 new officials last season. He said retaining officials is always an issue each season.
The high school football season begins Aug. 26 in Northern Nevada.
