News and Updates

Official's Background Checks
All individuals applying for an officiating license for the 2018-19 school year will be required to have a background check again. Once you submit your 2018-19 licensing application, you will receive an email from the WIAA with the link to the background check authorization form that you will need to complete online. This is the same process that was used for the first background check.

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.  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 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.

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.
