Quick question with rules. Where is the best/easiest place for me to find rules for individual sports. I ref and ump many different sports (Football, Volleyball, Basketball, Baseball, and Softball) with Junior high and sometimes JV level and am sometimes unsure of where I can find information on exact rulings to make sure I am up to date on rule changes and unique situations.
My advice to stay current on the rules is to register with the Minnesota State High School League. When you register, you will get rule books and play casebooks with your registration. You will also attend clinics and rules meetings to stay up-to-date. Just because you register with the MSHSL, doesn't mean that you must work high school varsity games.
You might also look in to joining a local referee/umpire association. Not only will you learn from other referees/umpires, but you will be able to socialize with them as well.
