softball state series
Softball State Series
  • Congratulations! This year’s State Series were fantastic!
  • Overall, Officials that were assigned did a great job!
  • Nearly every official and assigned crew ranked a 4.0 or higher within their evaluation
  • Reminder – Officials/Associations who are not following NFHS Softball Rules are doing a disservice to the players, the game and other officials.
  • Please be sure to call everything as noted in the NFHS Softball Rules Book!

2010 Softball Finals

A Special Thanks to Florida Professional Officials Association for their assistance during the 2010 Softball Finals in Clermont.

status of softball evaluation program
Status of Softball Evaluation Program
  • Evaluations continue to improve
  • Nearly all State Final Officials were evaluated at a 4.0 or higher during the State Finals
  • Overall, the positive feedback has been helpful to both the FHSAA and officials
  • Past evaluations are being used for State Final Assignments
  • All State Final Officials were debriefed following their game by a State Final Evaluator for immediate feedback
  • Officials are encouraged to be evaluated at State Field Clinics to support the submitted recommendations.
officials recommendation forms
Officials Recommendation Forms
  • Be sure to list alternate officials/crews if available
  • If you have officials that you would like to recommend, but have not met all criteria, please recommend them and then explain in the comment section why the official/crew has not met all criteria
  • Utilize the comment section that has been provided
  • It is important to list crews by ability – not by experience or because they have not been to that level before (i.e. their turn)! Some Associations are not utilizing the new format as it was designed. Remember – officials need to be recommended by ability, especially in the later rounds. I.e., State Semifinal/State Final Crew #1 should be the BEST 3 officials in your Association based on ABILITY.
  • Not all Associations receive assignments. Some Associations have received assignments EVERY year and in order to give every capable Association a chance, there are a few Associations that may not get an Assignment in a given year. We have over 30 Softball Associations and only 18 games. Not EVERYONE will be assigned.
  • Individuals that publicly degrade the assignments or the assignor do a disservice to their Association and the sport. It is the assignors goal to put the best officials on the field as our student-athletes only deserve the best!
