The National Association of Sports Officials (NASO) is gearing up for the 2016 Sports Officiating Summit scheduled from July 31, 2016 to August 2, 2016. The 34th annual Summit is being held in San Antonio, Texas and hundreds of leaders from state high school officiating programs, local association officers, supervisors and coordinators, assigners, conference administrators and sports officials at all levels are anticipated to attend.

Not only is ArbiterSports a supporter and exhibitor at the Summit, we are also involved in some great events during the conference, including the Referee Magazine’s 40th Birthday Bash and ArbiterFest. Below you will find more details about these must-attend activities.

Referee Magazine’s 40th Birthday Bash

Referee Magazine is celebrating its 40th anniversary and what better way to commemorate this occasion than throwing a big party? Immediately after the Grand Opening at the Summit, you are invited to join us for a party with some of the most well known names in officiating. Plus, you can enjoy delicious hors d’oeuvres and try Referee’s new signature cocktail at the cash bar. You will also have the opportunity to get a photo of you on the cover of Referee Magazine.

Everyone attending the party will receive a goodie bag filled with exclusive gifts. The party is included in the registration fee, so we hope to see you there.


During the NASO Summit, we will be hosting an exciting event, ArbiterFest. We have joined forces with this year’s Summit to provide this free training session that includes complimentary lunch. It is designed for experienced users and those who are new to Arbiter. You will have the chance to meet our CEO, Jeff Triplette, and get your questions answered. The training session will cover topics related to assigning, ArbiterPay, ArbiterGame and more.

ArbiterFest will be held from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM on Sunday, July 31, 2016 at the Grand Hyatt San Antonio.
