PIAA Wrestling Official, Bloomsburg, PA - December 7, 2015
Communication is most of the skills here along with listening, observing, and problems solving. Officiating any sport deals with tough communication and solving problems with unhappy fans, coaches, or players. I have officiated all ages of wrestlers and all divisions. I had to know how to talk to people to keep a calm environment, and also keeping my word to the calls I made as an official. I had to communicate with people to let them know why I made a certain call, so they do not think I am being unfair.
