  • Become a Sports Official The KSHSAA and Call The Game are looking for men and women ages 16 and up who want to return something to their school and community by becoming a licensed athletic official for youth and high school sports. There is a shortage of officials in our area and the number of registred officials continues to decline. Candidates should be in good physical condition and be able to make decisions on their feet and stick to them. Benefits of being an official are: supporting youth sports, giving back to the game you love, developing leadership skills, and earning additional income. Minimum age to work youth sports is 16 and for high school sports its 18. More information available from The KSHSAA at or contact John Dehan at "Call the Game" 913.897.7000, or Athletic Director John Hilton
