Board Adopts Social Media Guidelines

NASO’s Board of Directors has developed a social media policy for sports officials, which was approved by board members Dec. 4. The board feels that at a time in which tweets and texts have replaced conversations and phone calls amongst sports officials, it is important that officiating organizations and associations urge its officials to follow guidelines to avoid posting ill-advised comments through social media outlets.

The board feels that sports officials should refrain from public postings of their opinions about everything from how a coach handles his or her offense to what they think of the crew that worked a game in the state finals. Comments about a specific play or mechanics are best if made between officials and not through Facebook or Twitter, says the NASO board.
