Bookmark and Share

The IHSA is excited to announce its first-ever virtual Officials Conference, which will take place July 12th- 31st, 2021.

Registration is now open for the event. For the conference schedule, session list, and to register, visit

The virtual conference concept is a buffet-style event where officials pay one price and can take advantage of as many sessions and sports as they'd like over the course of two weeks.

Officials will be able to:

  • Learn from keynote presenters about a variety of big-picture topics related to officiating.
  • Earn IHSA clinic credit in at least 12 different sports, including sports that are not normally featured at our in-person conference. 
  • Multi-sport officials will be able to earn clinic credit in all of their sports.
  • Gain knowledge from mini-sessions in multiple sports.
  • Learn more about sports they do not currently officiate, but may be interested in starting.

Many of the clinics and sessions will be pre-recorded and available throughout the two-week conference duration. Officials can select the clinics and presentations they want to watch at any time during those two weeks. Officials from Chicago to Cairo, Quincy to Danville…and everywhere in between will be able to learn the same information from the convenience of their own home or office.

Conference agenda:
Monday, July 12 @ 7:00pm - Live Session with the IHSA's Sam Knox and Craig Anderson
Tuesday, July 13 @ 7:00pm – Live Session with Referee Magazine/NASO
Wednesday, July 14 @ 7:00pm – Live Session with Jude Kiah
Thursday, July 15 @ 7:00pm – Live Session with the IESA's Steve Endsley and Nicole Schaefbauer
