OHSAA Officiating Permit Renewal

Please make sure you renew your OHSAA certification by Saturday, June 30. All OHSAA certifications will expire at midnight on June 30 and anyone who has not completed their registration will not be eligible until their registration is complete. Also there will be a $50 late registration fee after this date. Make sure you forward a copy of your registration confirmation email to me so we can keep our record of available officials updated.

Lastly, if you are interested in working the HS summer tournament on July 7-8 and you have not contacted me, please send your registration confirmation and a message letting me know of your interest. As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at anytime.
