If you are a new official interested in becoming a certified official, welcome! We are excited that you want to stay involved in the sport(s) you love and provide a valuable service to our schools and our youth. You can get back in the game by becoming a licensed official in any of the sports sanctioned by the Iowa Girls’ High School Athletic Union.
As a licensed official, you not only have the opportunity to earn a little extra money, but also the opportunity to be a positive influence in the lives of our young people. The hours are somewhat flexible and contracts can be accepted based on your availability. Officials are a valuable partner in all of our scholastic athletic programs. You are needed and IGHSAU member schools value your services.
To become an IGHSAU licensed official, you will need to complete the registration process, pass a computer generated open-book exam with a score of 75% or better and view an on-line rules video. The IGHSAU also offers educational clinics in volleyball, basketball, soccer and softball, which will enable you to qualify for post-season assignments. Register now to become an IGHSAU certified official!
Registering early ensures that you will receive your rulebook prior to the rules meeting and exam being released. 2020-21 rulebooks will be mailed this year to all returning registered officials for softball, volleyball and basketball. New officials will be mailed a rulebook for the new sport in which you register for in 2020-21.
