Welcome to the IGHSAU Officials site!

We are excited to announce that the IGHSAU will now be using rSchoolToday and RefView for registration, licensing and post-season assignments, etc.  It's the same basic process as in the past with a few new features. There are tutorials and information from rSchool so that you can understand the registration and licensing process, etc in the online system.  Please view the RefView tutorial. Best of all, over 95% of our IGHSAU member schools already use RSchool and are familiar with its features.

For those officials renewing their license for the 2019-20 school year, please go to the rSchoolToday site.  Please note - You will not be a “returning official” until you have created your new rSchool account and registered for the first time. 

Please be aware of the following dates to avoid incurring $10 late fee charges.

Late fee charges will be applied as follows:

  • Volleyball & Swimming/Diving – August 1, 2019
  • Basketball - September 16, 2019
  • Soccer & Track/Field - January 16, 2020
  • Softball - March 16, 2020

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, take a computer generated open-book test with a score 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 to become an IGHSAU certified official.

Registering early ensures that you will receive your rulebook prior to the rules meeting and exam being released. 2019-20 Rulebooks will be mailed this year to all returning registered officials for track, soccer and softball.  New officials will be mailed a rulebook for the new sport in which you register for in 2019-20.

If you have any questions, please contact Sherry at sherry@ighsau.org or 515-401-1839.
