PSAC FALL OFFICIALS APPRECIATION & SPORTSMANSHIP WEEK - OCTOBER 7-13

LOCK HAVEN, Pa. --- The Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference will promote its sportsmanship awareness campaign along with D2CCA's and D2ADA's Officials Appreciation Week by recognizing 2019 Fall Officials Appreciation and Sportsmanship Week from Monday, October 7 through Sunday, October 13.

The PSAC Officials Appreciation & Sportsmanship Weeks are a campaign to emphasize and promote sportsmanship as it relates to the league's schools, coaches, student-athletes and fans. Through releases, social media and the web, the conference and its member institutions showcase their continuous commitment to sportsmanship. The PSAC is pleased to partner with the Division 2 Conference Commissioners Association and the Division 2 Athletic Directors Association to highlight these weeks in 2019-20. The PSAC previously had hosted a Sportsmanship Week in each of the three sports seasons. The D2CCA and D2ADA have initiated the Officials Appreciation Week and therefore the PSAC has combined both efforts.
'I am very pleased that our institutions have embraced combining our Sportsmanship Week with Officials Appreciation Week. Both are tied so directly to what we do and the values we embraced as an intercollegiate athletic conference. he Commissioners Association and Athletics Directors Association are trying to have a positive impact on the future of officiating,' said PSAC Commissioner Steve Murray. 'We have to do our part to support officials, encourage new officials and retain those we have. Supporting them is critical to what we do, without them, we would be solely intramurals. Sportsmanship is a cornerstone and key attribute of Division II and the PSAC. No matter how intense our competitions are, respecting our opponent is paramount.'

At all PSAC home competitions during Fall Officials Appreciation and Sportsmanship Week, every league team will showcase its continued dedication to sportsmanship by participating in a pregame handshake with the officials and opponents. Teams will present the officials with 'Thank You' cards prior to contest or will leave them in their locker room.

In addition to the teams' efforts, the conference and member schools will highlight the initiative to fans through releases, social media platforms and official websites.

A total of 70 intercollegiate athletic events are slated during the 2019 PSAC Fall Officials Appreciate and Sportsmanship Week. All fall sports (football, volleyball, field hockey and men's and women's soccer) will be involved.

Updates on PSAC Officials Appreciation and Sportsmanship are periodically posted on psacsports.org, by the league's Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts and using #PSACSportsmanship, #RefAppreciation and #ThankARef.

'The D2 ADA Board of Directors understands that there is an officiating crisis, and something must be done for the future of intercollegiate athletics,' said current D2 ADA President Chris Ratcliff, director of athletics at Rogers State University. 'The D2 ADA and D2 CCA leadership is committed to finding a solution before it is too late. Collegiate P2R is the first step in this process. D2 ADA is excited to see this program start and we look forward to assisting in the process of identifying and supporting young officials.'

The PSAC Officials Appreciation and Sportsmanship Weeks initiative are campaigns to recognize and promote sportsmanship and promote interest in officiating, retaining officials and appreciating them. During the 2019-20 academic year, three weeks have been tabbed as PSAC Officials Appreciation and Sportsmanship Weeks: October 7-13 (Fall), January 27-February 2 (Winter) and April 6-12 (Spring).
