Congratulations on your interest in becoming
a registered OHSAA official. Before you embark on this great opportunity you must be
sure that you are able to commit many hours of study and physical conditioning in order to
become a competent official.
Below is a list of certified
officiating instructors whom you should contact in order to enroll in an
officiating class. Instructors are listed in order by city. Please locate an instructor that lives closest to you and
contact the instructor to obtain a class schedule, enroll and to have any questions you
may have answered.
The class requirements
include approximately 25 hours of training during which you will be required to complete
two hours of written exams as well as four hours of practical officiating
experience. The objective of the class is to provide each official with the ability
to officiate 7th-8th, 9th and reserve level contests. It is our hope that as each
prospective official completes the OHSAA officiating training class, the new official will
feel comfortable and confident as they enter their officiating avocation.
Again I wish to congratulate
you on your interest in officiating and hope that you follow through and become an OHSAA
