Licensing Information
Official's licensing applications for the 2016-17 school year will be available May 2, 2016.  

When renewing your license for the 2016-17 school year, please submit your application and payment prior to the June 3 deadline date.  If submitted after June 3, you will be charged a $30 late fee.

If you still want to license for a 2015-16 spring sport (baseball, softball, soccer or track & field), you can no longer use the online form.  Call our office and speak with Kristen and she can take your payment over the phone (715-344-8580) and still get you licensed for the current spring sports season

Entering Schedule
A few reminders for officials when entering varsity schedules into your profile information:
1.  Only enter varsity schedules (non-varsity events cannot be entered).
2.  Scheduled events should be entered before the contest takes place so that coaches are able to rank you on a timely basis.
3.  If it is a multi-school event, do not guess what teams are participating based on prior participants.  If you do not know all the teams at the time you receive your contract, you can still enter the event but please go back in and add the participating teams within 36 hours after the event.

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.
