Online rulebooks are no longer in Arbiter. They are available as part of your IHSAA membership on a "mailing year" (every other year). You will need the NFHS Rules app and will need to log in with the same email address as on file with the IHSAA. For a non-mailing year (such as this year for football), they are only avaialble electronically as E-books through the NFHS.

The ICAOA would like to echo the personal message from Barry Mano of NASO & Referee Magazine on demonstrating personal beliefs as an official.
