IHSA Officials Wear Pink in October

The IHSA encourages officials to support breast cancer awareness in October. While we expect our officials to wear their regular uniforms and use their regular accessories during October contests, many officials use pink whistles or wear pink wrist bands to show their support for this great cause. If officials know they are officiating at a school on a night when the hosts are fundraising for breast cancer research, we invite officials to ask how they can participate in the fundraiser.

Joint Gathering of AOS and NOA – 10/5/16

Sam Knox, new IHSA assistant director in charge of officials, will be the keynote speaker for the annual combined meeting of the AOS and NOA.

The meeting will be on Wednesday, October 5 at Dave & Busters in Vernon Hills. Social will be at 6:00 p.m. with a cash bar followed by dinner at 7:00 with Mr. Knox to speak after.

Although the meal is buffet, it IS NOT “all you can eat.” In addition, if you do not RSVP by October 1 and decide to attend, you will be asked to wait until those who did RSVP have received their meals. Paid current members, both football and basketball, are invited to attend. We look forward to seeing you on October 5.

An invitation with an RSVP was emailed on 9/22/16.  Current AOS Members can click here to register.
