I am a Championship Official

Recognizing the rigors of this avocation, I will always endeavor to uphold the prestige, honor, and high esprit de corps of all my fellow Championship Officials.

Acknowledging the fact that a Championship Official is a more elite referee, I accept the fact that as a Championship Official my chosen sport expects me to move better, faster, and get more calls correct  than any other official.

Never shall I fail my comrades I will always keep myself mentally alert, physically strong, and morally straight and I will shoulder more than my share of the task whatever it may be, one hundred percent and then some.

Gallantly will I show my chosen sport that I am a specially selected and well trained official. My courtesy to coordinators, coaches and players, neatness of dress, and care of equipment shall set the example for others to follow.

Energetically will I officiate all contests. I shall be correct in my judgments on the court or field for I am better trained and will work with all my might. I will always support my comrades and under no circumstances will I ever embarrass my chosen sport.

Readily will I display the intestinal fortitude and courage required to make the right call and complete the contest, even though my judgments maybe seen as unpopular at the time.
