2021 Football

To become a football official, see our "Info" page on the left-hand side of the screen

Below is the finalized schedule for our 2021 preseason football meeting series.  All meetings will take place in person (except August 12, which will be via Zoom).

Fall Meetings:

  1. Monday, August 2 - Kicking game, rules changes, points of emphasis - John Mathias crew
  2. Thursday, August 5 - Plays from scrimmage - Ted Sueppel/Joe Loria crew
  3. Thursday, August 12 - Zoom meeting - We are excited to welcome back ESPN football rules analyst and former Big Ten referee Bill LeMonnier, along with Tim Kiefer of MIBT Media.  Bill and Tim will cover the passing game, along with some presentation on mechanics.  This meeting will be recorded for those who wish to view afterward.  Here is the link for the meeting.
  4. Monday, August 16 - Mechanics - Steve Meyer crew
  5. Monday, August 23 - Penalty enforcement - Chris Dobel & Dan Bontrager

All meetings (save August 12) will be held in the Feller Club Room inside Carver-Hawkeye Arena and will start at 6:45 PM.

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 have to log in with the same email address as on file with the IHSAA. For a non-mailing year, you will have to 1. use last year's books, 2. buy the printed books, or 3. purchase 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.
