THE MENTOR PROGRAM
The Mentor Program is up and running again with a committee that includes Jerome Yancey, Luis Terrazas, and Armando Rivas. The Mentor Committee will work in tandem with the Evaluation Committee, Area and Regional Directors and CHSAA to develop a program that will work in the best interest of both the mentors and mentees. If you have any questions or concerns about the program please contact one of the committee members.

We are going to encourage mentors and mentees to participate in any or all of the following activities: observe each other officiate, officiate games together, observe pre-games, attend meetings together, attend camps and clinics together and generally communicate with each other throughout the year. The level of commitment is up to each individual as long as the needs of the mentees are met.
We are always looking for experienced officials who are willing to give something back to the game by mentoring a new official. If you are interested in mentoring please contact the mentor committee and they will forward you a short questionnaire that will help us match you with a compatible mentee. We will be accepting mentors throughout the year with no closing date to participate.
Any new official, 1-3 years of experience, is encouraged to enter the Mentor Program. Contact the mentor committee and you will be sent a short questionnaire in order to match you with an experienced official. There is no deadline to apply as the program will be running throughout the year.
The Mentor Committee is soliciting spring, summer and fall leagues to compliment regular season high school games as a venue to allow mentors and mentees to work together throughout the year. If you assign any of these leagues please contact any committee member with league information in order to help us with this endeavor.
