A> General Requirements

Aug 21,2021 UPDATE


1. OSAA has given us permission to ease the requirement of the "additional 2 hours" of training due to the extreme shortage of refs this fall (2021).

2. If you are unable to attend the mandatory Field Training session and still want to work for MISOA this fall, please complete the OSAA Fall PreSeason online training, see #5 below.

Please Note: Refs between 15-18 years of age will mostly work as an Assistant Referee in games that do not involve the school they attend.
