06/21/12 Registration Deadline and Uniform Update

June 21, 2012 Officials Division Blog Updates

We wanted to remind you all that the deadline to register “on time” is midnight on June 30, 2012.  

If you do not meet the “on time” registration deadline it means a couple of things:
1) you will be charges a $25 late fee to register after June 30
2) you will not be eligible for post season assignments

Uniform transition period has been extended:

Due to issues we had with the transition of our licensing policy, we decided to move our implementation of the uniform requirements back a year.  
The following uniform and embroidery requirements are now accurate:

1) Embroidered logo is required for state championship officials in fall of 2012-2013, but optional at all other levels.

2) Embroidered logo is required for all postseason competition in 2013-2014, but optional during the regular season.

3) Embroidered logo is required for all contests beginning in 2014-2015.

4) The exception to this implementation is the baseball / softball hat, which has already had its phase-in period, and is required for regular and postseason at the varsity level in 2011-2012.
