2015-16 Officials Licensing Information
Licensing for the 2015-16 school year is now open. Officials must complete the renewal process by June 5, 2015 in order to avoid paying the late fee.
New Ranking, Schedule and Availability Information for 2015-16
Beginning with the 2015-16 school year the WIAA will no longer be using the services of Athletix. We are developing our own system to gather varsity schedules from officials, rank officials and obtain tournament availabilities. Athletix has been a great partner with the WIAA over the past year but we feel that it is time we bring these processes back in-house.
What this means for officials -- Officials will need to enter into our system on the WIAA website their varsity schedule. Officials that are tournament eligible will complete tournament availabilities through the WIAA website.
What this means for coaches – Head coaches will go to the WIAA website to perform rankings of officials.
Complete details and instructions will be provided, prior to the start of the 2015-16 school year.
Please note that Athletix will still be available for officials regular season assigning purposes and other services for assignors and officials.
W-9 Forms Required by Officials
Officials are required to have on file a W9 form with all schools they are contracted to officiate at. It’s the law. When asked to complete this form please comply with the request of the school business office. If you do not comply, payment may be withheld or delayed. In discussions WIAA Executive Director Dave Anderson has had with Mr. Woody Wiedenhoeft, Executive Director of the Wisconsin Association of School Business Officials, Mr. Wiedenhoeft stated “the official is breaking the law” by not submitting a W9 upon request.
