05/01/17 – 2017 Officiate Kentucky Day Reminder

May 3, 2017 Officials Division Blog Updates

Officials are reminded that Officiate Kentucky Day (OKD) will take place on Saturday, July 29th in Louisville. Space for this event is limited (and is already more than 50% sold out) and registration will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.

Particularly for those sports that require Advanced Camp attendance to be considered for the postseason (Softball, Baseball, Volleyball and Soccer currently, and Football and Basketball beginning with the 2018-2019 seasons), attendance at OKD will satisfy this requirement for a four-year period! Please note this will be the only event offered this year in any sport that will meet the Advanced Camp requirement.

Following OKD, the National Association of Sports Officials (NASO) will be having its Annual Summit at the same venue from July 30th until August 1st. Both events will provide a great opportunity to be exposed to the highest levels and advanced topics in officiating today.

The cost to attend OKD will be $50 and includes a boxed lunch on site. At this lunch, the KHSAA will recognize its nominees for Outstanding Official in each sport as well as the Official of the Year honorees. No banquet will be held at the KHSAA offices this year. Please note, early registration will be $40 until May 30. The cost of registration for OKD does not include registration for the NASO Summit.

To register, go to: http://khsaa.org/of123-officiate-kentucky-day-registration-form/. Once registered, you will be sent an email with directions to submit payment. You are not registered until payment has been submitted.
