2023-24 Officials' Appreciation Weeks

FALL SPORTS: October 1-7, 2023
WINTER SPORTS: January 7-13, 2024
SPRING SPORTS: April 14-20, 2024


Mechanicsburg, PA – The Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association (PIAA) for the third consecutive year is dedicating three weeks to recognize and show appreciation to the nearly 14,000 PIAA registered officials. This recognition program for all PIAA registered officials will start next week, October 1-7, 2023, and will apply to all fall sports officials. The Winter Sports Officials Appreciation Week is scheduled for January 7-13, 2024, and Spring sports officials will be recognized April 14-20, 2024.

PIAA Board of Directors President and PIAA District 2 Chairman Frank Majikes mentioned “For the third consecutive year PIAA member schools are happy to celebrate and recognize the important part that PIAA registered officials play in the education of Pennsylvania students. The efforts of all PIAA registered officials are underappreciated by many. Through these three weeks of recognition our member schools are able to thank officials for their efforts.” President Majikes has been a registered PIAA official now for over 50 years, so these weeks are especially meaningful to him.

PIAA is requesting the assistance of administrators, coaches, and players at PIAA member schools to highlight the efforts of officials working on their campuses during these Appreciation Weeks. Member schools have been provided a listing of potential activities they can use to illustrate their appreciation.
