Officials to participate in "Calling for a Cure" campaign

Some FHSAA contest officials have agreed to participate in the “Calling for a Cure” campaign. By participating, these officials have agreed to donate their game fee, or a portion of their game fee, to the American Cancer Society. The dates for participation in the state of Florida are as follows:

  • October 2017
  • Jan. 8-12, 2018
  • March 19-23, 2018

If you notice that the contest officials are using pink whistles during the contest, this means these officials have agreed to make an individual donation in this effort. If this is the case, the FHSAA kindly asks that you acknowledge this participation through the public address announcement found below. Please make the announcement a minimum of two times during the contest. For football, make the announcement between quarters. In volleyball, make the announcement once between the first and second game in a match, and then again between the second and third game in a match.

The administrator or coach may ask the officials if they will be using pink whistles for the contest to communicate the need to make the announcement to the public address announcer.

"Ladies and gentlemen, we recognize the officials of the <NAME OF OFFICIALS ASSOCIATION> for their support in the fight against breast cancer. You may note their willingness to support this effort by the use of the pink whistle. The pink whistle signifies that the contest officials are contributing the contest’s game fee or a portion of the game fee to research in the Calling for a Cure campaign. If you wish to further support this effort or become an official, you may find the necessary information on the FHSAA’s website at www.BecomeAnOfficial.org."
