Mandatory High School Clinic

The MWSRA rules clinic that is mandatory for all who want to work Maryland high school games will be held on July 30, 2014 at 7:00 pm at Paint Branch High School. Be sure to arrive on time, because you have to sign in with the State Association (MPSSAA) in order to be credited and the list will not be open for the entire meeting.

Other clinics will be held around the State and you must attend one of them and pass the test in order to officiate high school games in the fall. If you cannot attend the MWSRA clinic, you can find the others at http://www.mpssaa.org/officials/OfficialsFallInterpretationClinics.asp

Please bring your fee for registering with the State. It is $34 for registering to referee in Maryland and $20 for DC. You will do the test online and it will be ready in August.

New Documents for MWSRA Members

There are two new documents under the Resources page with which members need to acquaint themselves.

The first is the fall 2014 version of the MWSRA Client Rules and Procedures (9 pages) document and the second is a new one page summary of Key Reminders for the scholastic (top half) and MSI leagues (bottom half).

The reminders includes key rules and regulations that are missed or misinterpreted by some MWSRA officials in the past several seasons. This one-page (or half-page) document should serve as a quick guide that any official can place in their pocket or bag.
