Officials groups unable to keep pace with growth of Maine sports

...It’s not a given. Officials organizations for nearly every interscholastic sport in Maine have dealt with a shortage of members in recent years, leaving some sub-varsity contests understaffed. That might entail one official instead of two working a game, or having to reschedule games to dates when there are enough officials to provide full coverage.

The numbers game
Take Maine’s signature sport, high school basketball.

There were 566 members of the International Association of Approved Basketball Officials active statewide during the 2007-2008 season. Last winter, 496 officials — 451 men and 45 women — were active IAABO officials in Maine, according to Peter Webb, the state’s longtime basketball commissioner.

That’s a drop of nearly 13 percent in active membership during the last decade.
