2019-20 Licensing

Licensing for the 2018-19 is closed for all sports.  Licensing for the 2019-20 is now being accepted.

If you were licensed in 2018-19, you must submit your renewal application by June 7, 2019.  If submitted after that date, you will be charged a $30 late fee.

You again have two options to choose from when renewing your 2019-20 official’s license.

Option 1 (preferred):  Complete the application online and pay with either a Visa or Mastercard.  If you choose this option – do the following:

You must first login with the email we have in your profile information.  If your email has changed, please make sure to change your email in your profile before you renew your license.  Under OFFICIALS choose Online Licensing. You will select the option to renew your license. Proceed from there and follow the prompts.   

Reciprocity and individuals using the military initiative are now able to license online. Reciprocity must include verification that they are licensed in their home state for the 2019-20 school year and military individuals must include verification of military service. 

For those individuals that will still be in high school for 2019-20, you must have your athletic director renew your license. High school students cannot renew online, if you do, you will be charged the licensing fees.  If you are graduating from high school after the 2018-19 school year, you can license online as you will now have to pay the licensing fees.

Option 2: Print the application from our website and send via USPS.   Under OFFICIALS choose Become an Official,  you will then be taken to the page where you can print the 2019-20 licensing application.

Contact Joan Gralla jgralla@wiaawi.org or 715-344-8580 if you have any questions.

News and Updates

Official's Background Checks
Background checks are required for all individuals that did not complete one during the 2018-19 school year.

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. Games cannot be entered once the season is over. 
3.  In 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 12 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.

Approved Camps and Clinics

NOTE:    Clinic participation does NOT exempt official from sport meeting requirements. ALL criteria for advanced classification must be met.  See Page 4 of the Guide for Officials (found on the Officials Center) for details regarding classification advancement requirement.
