All Members must register with the MIAA for the season so you will be eligible for both regular season and playoff assignments.
Note: Registration alone is $10, registration plus background check is $45. If you completed a background check in 2018 it is good for 3 years and you will only have to pay the $10 registration fee.
Dear MIAA Game Officials,
Thank you for participating with our 225,000 student-athletes who competed in MIAA interscholastic sports. Your collaboration with our member schools and leagues is valued.
Registration for the 2021 – 22 school year will open on July 15th. All officials will once again complete this process through the MIAA ArbiterSports page found here: http://miaa.arbitersports.com/front/110185/Site .
Information and instructions for both new and returning officials can be found on this main page.
Your support and professionalism for this important initiative is appreciated.
Many thanks for your service,
Richard L. Pearson
MIAA & MSSAA
All officials should have gotten an email from the MIAA on or about June 12 with information regarding the new procedure for officials to register with the MIAA. Officiating boards will no longer be registering their members with the MIAA as a group. This process will now be done by the individual officials through ArbiterSports. The process includes the MIAA registration and Background Check. The cost for a background check and to register in one sport will be $45; each additional sport registration will be $10. You will continue to register with the MIAA personally each year, but you will only need to have a background check done every 3 years.
You may register beginning on June 15, 2015 and must register by July 31, 2015
Note: High School Assigners (Commissioners) have been instructed by their Leagues/Conferences to only use officials who have successfully completed the Background Check. If you do not go through this procedure, you will not be able to officiate Middle or High School games at any level (Middle School, Freshman, JV or Varsity).
Step-by-Step Process: (this should only take 10-15 minutes to complete)
You will now have a new Organization on your list, “MIAA State Office”, with you log in, the Central Hub account type means that it acts as a web site where information about the organization can be found.
It is with a heavy heart that we regret to inform you that Bill Leanues has passed away.
Bill had been battling cancer for some months and passed away on Thursday evening (May 15).
For many of us Bill was a friend, mentor and brother in the EMAIFO football officials fraternity.
He started officiating football in 1967 and never stopped. He was full of energy and always hustling from one game and sport to the next.
Bill worked football, baseball, soccer and basketball.
He rose through the ranks and became the assigning commissioner for the Old Colony,
Atlantic Coast, Patriot, South Shore, Mayflower and Cape Leagues.
In that role he flourished and many of us owe him for his faith and trust in our ability to deliver outstanding officiating in a game we all love.
We respectfully request you refrain from contacting Susan Leanues until the family has completed the arrangements.
When more information becomes available, it will be posted.
The 2014 Membership dues were due by May 1st. They are now late, a $15 late fee will be added to the regular dues. Information is on the Dues and Payment page.
This is a reminder to all MIAA Game Officials that the NFHS Concussion Course needs to be taken ANNUALLY. However, each year, certification expires on June 30, so if you haven’t taken the course since July 1st, you need to take it before the season starts.Continue reading
