IHSA Concussion Reminder – due by 9/1/16!

As a reminder ALL officials must complete and pass the concussion management program by September 1, 2016. The concussion training and exam are available in the Officials Center in the License Status and Availability Summary area. You will notice this area is shaded pink to alert you that it needs your attention. Please take time to complete this important training and exam by September 1 so you can continue as an IHSA official. Officials who do not pass the concussion exam by September 1 will be placed on IHSA probation. Officials who are on probation will not be assigned to postseason events.

From the IHSA Regarding Football Jerseys – 8/29/16

Hoffman Estates wears jerseys that read STRENGTH and HONOR. They are allowed to wear them at the Varsity level in 2016, without penalty. They join the list with Glenbard West, Tinley Park Andrew, and Lake Villa Lakes as schools that have formally asked our office for exceptions to this rule. If officials notice other teams at the Varsity level that are wearing jerseys that display words beside the school name, mascot name, or player name, they should discuss it with the head coach, but officials are not to assess a penalty in this situation. Following the game, officials should send a Special Report to the IHSA. ​This is a non-issue for any lower level teams. Lower levels are allowed to wear jerseys with words on the front or back.

IHSA Announces 2015-16 Officials of the Year

January 13, 2016

Football Jim Glueckert Arlington Heights

The Illinois High School Association (IHSA) is proud to announce its 2015-16 Officials of the Year in Football. To be considered for this honor, an official must first be nominated by an Officials Association recognized by the IHSA. IHSA staff members then vote on the winners based on factors such as character, skill as an official, and levels worked in the IHSA State Series. All of this year’s winners will be recognized at a banquet during the 2016 IHSA Officials Conference, which will be held on Saturday, July 23 at the Embassy Suites in East Peoria.

“I have routinely said that one of the great highlights of my 25 years at the IHSA has been having the opportunity to work closely with officials,” said IHSA Executive Director Marty Hickman. “The IHSA Officials of the Year are some of the best officials we have to offer, yet, no matter how well they do their jobs, they will still be questioned by coaches, fans and players. It takes a special kind of dedication and personal integrity to excel in this vocation. Thank you to these individuals, as well as to all IHSA officials, for all that you do.”
