2018 IOA Wrestling Rules Class

Indiana Officials Association (IOA) member Jeff McClane, with the permission of the IOA and the Indiana High School Athletic Association (IHSAA), will conduct a wrestling rules class. This class primarily is designed to prepare individuals to take the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) examination to become a licensed IHSAA Wrestling Official, however it is also a great way for already-licensed wrestling officials to do a deep dive into the rules for better understanding and clarity in preparation for the wrestling season. This class is not required to become licensed by IHSAA to officiate wrestling however active participation in this class will make passing the licensing exam much easier by increasing one’s depth and breadth knowledge of the NFHS wrestling rules. Not only will the letter but also the spirit of the NFHS wrestling rules will be taught/discussed. (Note: This class will not teach wrestling so some familiarity of the sport is advisable.)

When: Tuesdays (Sep 4 – Oct 2) from 6 – 8 p.m. (Note: Five consecutive Tuesdays)

Where: Classes will be held at International Medical Group.  2960 North Meridian St.  (South of the Children's Museum)

Cost: $25.00 for IOA members* (Note: IOA membership is $40/year)

Benefits of IOA membership: Participation in the IOA New(er) Wrestling Officials Mentoring Program which includes instruction & assignment of a personal mentor; participation in informative & stimulating IOA wrestling officials meetings, attending wrestling clinics, and assistance in securing wrestling contracts.

Message for all Coaches

Please help us out if you have any freshman or J.V. tournaments and matches so we can get some newer officials to fill some of those openings.  This will help them get the experience they need to become quality varsity officials.  Also, if you have any wrestlers who you think would be good candidates to become an official, let us know.  We'd be happy to talk to them about how to get started as we are always looking for new officials.
