INFORMATION FROM THE WIAA

Since 2020, we have lost around 35% of WIAA officials.  More and more, we are faced with having to reschedule contests to different days or times just to ensure we have officials.  This is an alarming trend.  We are hoping to find additional officials for the following sports: football, volleyball, cross country, basketball, wrestling, baseball, softball, and track & Field.  You don’t have to be an expert; just someone who enjoys and understands the game and wants to help kids.  We will help you get registered, and we will find officials to help mentor you.  Plus, the money isn’t bad.  Contact Mr. Clinton here at school if you’re interested.
