Once the Part 1 Test is released by the IHSA we will review it at our meetings.
AOA meetings qualify for a Level 2 clinic if you attend at least four of the six scheduled meetings AND pay the clinic fee. The clinic fee is included in the annual football membership registration, for new AOA football members the clinic fee is $40 for multi-sport AOA members and $50 for AOA football only members.
The IACO Football Officials Training Class prepares the participant by covering game rules, play situations, penalty enforcement, game timing, and mechanics (positioning) through presentations and game film review. After completion of the class and earning an IHSA (Illinois State High School Association) sports officiating license, you will be given the opportunity to be assigned to officiate high school football games for the upcoming season. Officials with 1-2 years experience also find this class very advantageous and are welcome to attend.
