Benefits of Officiating

Current officials and association leaders are already likely to know to perks of officiating. Sometimes, there are other aspects that may be overlooked. Below is a list that associations and officials have come up with to draw new officials.

Why Officiate?

  • Stay in the game; be a part of the sport you love
    It's a great way to stay involved in the sport. The great thing about being an official is that you are an active participant in the game and you actually get to be on the field and not on the sideline or in the stands.
  • Flexible scheduling; as an Independent Contractor, you choose your schedule
  • It's the ultimate college job; earn money working around your college schedule
  • Give back to your community
    Officiating is a way to give something back to the community. The sports official is a role model who is charged with enforcing the concepts of fair play and good sportsmanship. It provides a unique opportunity to positively influence young people.
  • Face new challenges and grow
    Officiating affords an individual the opportunity to develop interpersonal skills and to hone one's judgment skills. Officiating requires you to make instantaneous decisions, resolve conflicts, and deal with stress and pressure. It demands good communications skills and the ability to think on your feet. The ability to work a game fairly and smoothly is a skill one can be proud of.

Online Advertising

Online advertising, also called online marketing or Internet advertising or web advertising, is a form of marketing and advertising which uses the Internet to deliver promotional marketing messages to consumers. This includes email marketing, search engine marketing (SEM), social media marketing, many types of display advertising (including web banner advertising), and mobile advertising.

Online advertising is widely used across virtually all industry sectors and many associations have had increased response to online ads.

If you recruit two new officials, you receive $80 cash, if you recruit three or more, you receive $100 cash (cap at some amount, i.e. $100 maximum).
  • High School Senior Recruiting:
    Suggested by Cliff Filley, Commissioner of Mid-Western Football Officials Association.

Sign-Up and Register to Become an Official

How to Register as an Official

  1. First, determine which sport and Local Officials Association you want to join. You can use the Association Lookup Tool to find the closest association near a given ZIP code or high school. The Associations tab also contains a list of all Local Official Associations.
  2. Are you at least 18 years old?
    • Yes, continue on to Step 3.
    • No, if you are under 18 years old, you will need to contact your association's Commissioner in order to request an exception for youth referees. (These exceptions start with Commissioners, contact your Commissioner with an email expressing your interest to officiate.) Your Commissioner will then provide you with different registration instructions; do not continue to Step 3.
  3. Complete the Online Registration process. Registration is completed through the OSAA/OAOA Central Hub on ArbiterSports. The online registration form is fairly self explanatory and contains contact information if you need assistance. The registration process includes:
    • Choosing a portal
    • Selecting a sport
    • Providing contact information and a mailing address
    • Consenting to a background check
    • Agreeing to an Independent Contractor notification
    • Selecting your Local Officials Association
    • Paying registration fees online
    Choosing a Portal There are two registration options available for officials registering with the OSAA:
    Oregon Portal - this portal should be selected if you are a member or plan to be a member of a Local Officials Association chartered in the state of Oregon in any of the seven sports (Football, Soccer, Volleyball, Basketball, Baseball, or Softball).
    Affiliate Portal - this portal should be selected if you are a member of an officiating association located outside of Oregon but will be officiating contests within Oregon's border. This option should also be selected if the Commissioner of your association has indicated that you should complete the affiliate registration process even though you may be a member of an Oregon association.
  4. Look for your Officials Packet in the mail. Your packet includes an OSAA badge and rules books. See the "Registration Fees" table and "Officials Packets" section for additional information.
  5. Complete the required annual Certification Tests. Refer to the Certification/Eligibility tab for additional information including all certification requirements for officials, links to online rules exams, concussion testing information, and OCEP requirements. If you are a new official, it is recommended to attend at least one of your association's training meetings before taking the rules exam.
  6. Get Training from your Local Officials Association. Check with your association for any additional membership requirements, training meeting schedule, and assignment procedures.

Certification Requirements for OSAA Officials

Per AOH Rule 4.1, in order to be a certified official:

  2. The official must be a member in good standing of a local officials association.
  3. The official must complete the annual OSAA online officials registration process.
  4. The official must attend six study/training meetings or complete 10 hours of approved training.
  5. The official must pass a criminal conviction history screening; officials cannot have been convicted of:
    1. A felony involving the use, possession or sale of a controlled substance within the last 10 years. The 10-year period of ineligibility to officiate shall commence from the date of suspension from officiating duties or from the date of conviction - whichever occurred first; or
    2. A crime involving the use or threatened use of violence against a person within the last 10 years. The 10-year period of ineligibility to officiate shall commence from the date of suspension from officiating duties or from the date of conviction - whichever occurred first; or
    3. A crime involving a minor child at any time.
  6. The official must complete the annual OSAA concussion training.

The full list of certification requirements can be found in the OSAA Athletic Officials Handbook (AOH).

Concussion Training

All OSAA officials in all sports must complete the annual OSAA concussion training course. Training must be completed before officials are allowed to officiate any contest.
» Course Instructions

OSAA Rules Examinations

Online Exams
Officials must annually pass an online rules exam for each sport they officiate. Testing is administered online through ArbiterSports. Exams are open book; no time limit. Officials have 3 attempts to complete the exam.

Certification Levels and Eligibility Badges

To help officials and Commissioners understand the certification levels for officials listed in AOH Rule 4.2, the ArbiterSports system assigns officials digital eligibility badge icons representing the highest level of certification that official has obtained. The badges correspond to the levels of certification as follows.

Only one badge with the highest level of certification will be shown on ArbiterSports.*

Registered - The official has completed the annual OSAA online officials registration process and passed a criminal conviction history screening (see (e) above). Registered officials who have not obtained a higher level of certification are prohibited from officiating any OSAA sanctioned contest.

Sub-Varsity - The official has met the requirements of a registered official, taken the relevant OSAA sport examination, completed OCEP Interrupting and Preventing Discriminatory Acts training, completed the annual OSAA online concussion training, and completed any other required components. Sub-varsity certified officials are not allowed to officiate OSAA sanctioned contests above the sub-varsity level.

Varsity - The official has met the requirements of a sub-varsity official, scored at least 75% on the OSAA sport examination, completed OCEP Interrupting and Preventing Discriminatory Acts training, completed the annual OSAA online concussion training, and completed any other required components. Varsity certified officials are allowed to officiate varsity and sub-varsity OSAA sanctioned contests.

Playoff - The official has met the requirements of a varsity official, scored at least 90% on the OSAA sport examination, completed OCEP Interrupting and Preventing Discriminatory Acts training, has OCEP Principles certification (see requirements), obtained and has current OCEP Playoff certification (see requirements), and completed any other required components. Playoff certified officials are allowed to officiate any level of OSAA sanctioned contest and OSAA State Championship events.

It is the responsibility of the local officials association to establish membership and assigning criteria. Such additional qualifications may be no less stringent than the requirements established in the Athletic Officials Handbook.

*Note: ArbiterSports assigns eligibility badges twice a day around 11 o'clock. It may take a while for the system to recognize eligibility completion requirements; for example, if an official only recently completes the rules exam, their badge may not appear until up to 12 hours later. The highest level of certification badge will be displayed. If an official obtains the playoff level of certification and receives a black badge icon, they are eligible to officiate sub-varsity, varsity, and playoff contests. However, an official that only has an orange sub-varsity badge cannot be assigned to a varsity level contest.

Officials Certification and Education Program

The OSAA/OAOA Officials Certification and Education Program (OCEP) is designed to ensure that Oregon officials statewide are trained in a consistent and standardized manner. There are three OCEP components:

OCEP Principles Certification

OCEP Principles

Mandatory for All Officials
One-Time Requirement

Must obtain within first 3 years of officiating; attend in-person clinic or take online course

Instructions for Officials
Instructions for Clinicians
OCEP Principles Course Presentation
This principles certification assists new officials in more general concepts such as officiating philosophy, conflict management, officiating ethics, and personal development. All officials must obtain OCEP Principles certification within their first three years of officiating.

OCEP Principles certification is gained by attending an in-person course or clinic approved by the OAOA Executive Board on the basic principles of officiating. Officials can also individually obtain certification by completing the online NFHS Interscholastic Officiating Course (see the Instructions for Officials).

This requirement does not apply to officials certified by the OSAA in 2005-06 or prior; or any transfer official previously licensed or certified by a state high school governing body.

Each local association should conduct an annual OCEP Principles course. It is highly suggested that these courses are offered to other neighboring associations of other sports to have a diverse participant base. For additional information, please refer to the files on the right side of this page.

OCEP Interrupting and Preventing Discriminatory Acts Training

OCEP Interrupting and Preventing Discriminatory Acts

Mandatory for All Officials
One-Time Requirement

Must complete online training course before officiating
All OSAA contest officials must complete OCEP Interrupting and Preventing Discriminatory Acts training. This training course helps officials to be prepared to work collaboratively and act if a discriminatory or harassing incident occurs during an interscholastic event.

This training is a one-time requirement. Officials must complete the "OSAA Interrupting and Preventing Discriminatory Acts Training" online course before officiating any level of OSAA-sanctioned contest, including jamborees. The online training course for officials can be accessed through ArbiterSports from the Eligibility page.

Obtaining Certification

  1. Navigate to www.arbitersports.com
  2. Sign in to your ArbiterSports account (same one you used for registration)
  3. Choose the "OSAA - Central Hub" account to work in

OSAA Rules, Policies, and Forms for Contests and Officials

Note: OSAA contest officials are not to interpret OSAA rules. Practice/game limitations, player eligibility, and other rules governing schools outside of the NFHS rules of that particular sport do not fall under the purview of contest officials.

Assignments to OSAA Sanctioned Contests

Per OSAA Board Policy, OSAA certified officials are required for all OSAA sanctioned activities at the varsity and junior varsity levels including jamborees*. Contests with participants of differing levels are considered a contest at the higher of the two levels (i.e. a varsity team playing a junior varsity team is considered a varsity level contest). Schools have the responsibility to request permission from their local officials association to use non-certified officials at sub-varsity contests where certified officials are not required.

*Exception: OSAA certified officials are required in baseball and softball at the varsity level only. OSAA certified officials are required in football at all sub-varsity levels.

Sportsmanship Recognition by Officials

All officials will now have an opportunity to nominate players, teams, coaches, and fans for exhibiting good sportsmanship via a brand-new sportsmanship award program.

You can nominate any school, team, fan section, or coach by quickly using the drop-down boxes and share the outstanding example of sportsmanlike behavior you witnessed. The nomination will then go to the OSAA, who will, in turn, let the school know they were nominated and why. At the end of each sports season the program with the best nomination for sportsmanship for each sport will be announced and that program will earn 100 OSAA Cup points for their school.

Be on the lookout for great examples of sportsmanship and vote today!

Nomination Form

This form is for officials to nominate schools, communities, and individual programs for exhibiting the traits of exemplary sportsmanship. This form is to be filled out for a single school. If you want to nominate both schools in a contest, please fill out a separate form for each school.

Select an activity

Select an activity

Please provide a brief description of the great sportsmanship that you observed.
