National Association Of Sports Officials Survey

As a GHSA official you are invited to participate in the NASO Survey. See below for an overview and click on the survey link to begin your anonymous survey today.The National Association of Sports Officials (NASO), through special funding representing, is excited to conduct the most comprehensive officiating study ever attempted. This anonymous survey is collecting more data than has ever been accessible before regarding sportsmanship, recruitment and retention, compensation, controversial issues in officiating, and a wide variety of topics highly valuable to the industry.

The last time an officiating survey of this magnitude was accomplished was in 2017 when more than 17,000 sports officials from all levels and all sports made their voices heard. For this new study to be successful, it absolutely must have the participation of as many dedicated officials and officiating administrators like you as possible.



Your participation will allow YOUR VOICE to count toward positive changes in the officiating industry.

Results will be unveiled at the Sports Officiating Summit 2023 in Riverside, Calif., July 30-Aug. 1. After that, the data will be published and shared for everyone in the officiating industry to use.

Results will give greater vision to all levels of the industry and positively impact national, state and local officiating associations.

The study requires a commitment, just like your officiating. It is comprehensive and may take 30-40 minutes of your time. BUT it does not all have to be completed in one session. As long as you’re using the same computer or tablet, you can start, stop and come back to it as many times as needed until you have finished. If you only have 5-10 minutes at a time, that is no problem. The deadline to complete the survey is March 15, 2023.

The bottom line is that YOUR input is vital to the success of this effort. Thank you.

Thank you for your time and input. If you have any questions, please contact us via email at [email protected]. We look forward to sharing the results with you and impacting our industry together.
