11. I will work AAU and Spring Leagues and Team Camps, but I have never wanted to get a call from our assignor and turn it down because I was doing Rec ball.

Geez, feel like I just spent time with my therapist!

Mark: When you start your HS career, if you are interested take a look at my association CBOA.ORG. We are always looking for good officials and you can work as much as you want to. Keep in mind that starting with the coming school year, A & AA girls now play in the winter vs fall. Should make for a full schedule. There is also a ton of rec ball that goes year round.
