About Us...

Covid-19 Update

As we begin to resume our (new) normal operations after the state and nationwide shutdowns, we have decided to continue working remotely. What does this mean to you, our valued customers, placing an order? Probably nothing! We will continue to offer the best customer service and quality merchandise. Please do not hesitate to contact us by phone with any questions. Thank you for supporting our small business and we look forward to continuing our work with referees and umpires on the local and nationwide level for many years to come! Stay safe everyone!

We bring almost 40 years of experience in the referee equipment business and our pride in providing outstanding customer service. Get Official was previously the NFHS (National Federation of State High School Associations) Equipment Center, the national rules writing body for high school sports and activities. In fact, one of our owners worked for the NFHS for over 18 years in many capacities, including working with national rules writing committees and the National Board of Directors. When you contact us, you're speaking directly to us, maybe even one of the owners!

FAST shipping! If you place your order Monday through Friday before 3:00 pm Central Time, your order will ship the SAME DAY!!! Orders placed after 3:00 pm or on the weekend are shipped the next working day. We ship by UPS Ground, with delivery within 1-4 business days, depending on the destination. In the rare instance of an out-of-stock item, we will contact you with availability information and/or alternatives. For shipments outside the continental US, including Alaska, Hawaii and APO addresses, please contact us for options and pricing.

We offer quality referee equipment and clothing at an affordable price, dealing with the best manufactures in the business including Smitty, Champion, Champro, Richardson, Fox 40 and more. You'll find many other sources for equipment; you won't find better equipment at better prices. Remember, you get what you pay for! We strive to carry only quality referee equipment and clothing, merchandise that is backed by our manufacturers. Don't be fooled by lower prices on lower quality merchandise.

If you are new to officiating, we can help! Our Referee and Umpire Starter Packages are the easiest and most economical way to hit the field or court looking like a seasoned veteran. We never substitute quality for price! All items in our packages are the same quality as our regular line-and they are designed to get you started without breaking the bank! In fact, many veteran officials use our packages to replenish their referee gear.
