How to Attend Once You Are Registered:

  • You will receive an email with a link to the clinic about 15 minutes prior to the start of the session, we advise you get on at least 5 minutes before the start of the session.

  • Laptop works best, but iPad/phone work too. Wireless/Bluetooth head phones give the best audio experience - if that isn't an option turn the volume all the way up on your device. 

Once you have completed the clinic, those who have not previously completed the Trusted Officials program will be sent a link to complete the background check, concussion training, and the code of conduct. If any of these items were completed since November 1, 2020 for basketball or baseball, you will not be required to submit again. The Trusted Officials background check and code of conduct need to be completed annually, and the concussion training is every three years. We will also get a list from the MSHSL of who is concussion certified so that they are not required to complete it twice. If your background check is up to date we will refund $5 of your registration fee. Thank you and please let me know if you have any questions.
