The TSSAA negotiated a fee reduction for its school members with basketball referees recently. In dollar terms, basketball referees at high school games will be taking a $25 pay cut for officiating a doubleheader, a girls and boys game. This was a response to the Governor’s Executive Order No. 70 to limit crowd size at school athletic events.
