All OHSAA registered officials are required to renew their officiating permits annually in the month of June. Concussion certification is good for three years from the date of completion. If it has expired, recertification prior to the renewed deadline is required.
Renewing your permit is a three-step process - see below.
Renewal information will be emailed or mailed to each registered official with an active status the end of May. It is imperative that you update myOHSAA with email address changes.
Starting June 1 - Renew your permit online through officials.myohsaa.org. If you have trouble logging in, please click "Forgot login?" to have your username and a link to reset your password emailed to you.
(Visa, MC or Discover cards accepted and electronic checks)
NOTE: THE OHSAA IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR NON-DELIVERY OF RENEWAL INFORMATION. FAILURE TO RECEIVE A NOTICE IS NOT A LEGITIMATE EXCUSE FOR NOT RENEWING YOUR PERMIT ON TIME.
Beginning in 2014-15, renewals will only be accepted online. On-line registration costs are $55.00 for the first sport and $25.00 for each additional sport an official is eligible to renew.
HELP NEEDED: The OHSAA Officiating Renewal Call Center will be open on Monday, Wednesday, Friday 10 a.m.- 2 p.m. and Tuesday, Thursday 2 p.m.- 6 p.m.. This call center will help with all officials renewal questions and concerns.
ON-LINE renewals must be completed prior to midnight June 30. Renewals submitted after that time/date will require the additional $50.00 late fee.
After June 30th a $50.00 late renewal fee is required. Late renewal deadlines are as follows:
FALL SPORTS - July 1 - July 31. No renewal for fall sports will be accepted after July 31.
WINTER SPORTS - July 1- Oct 31. No renewal for winter sports will be accepted after Oct 31.
SPRING SPORTS - July 1 - Jan 31. No renewal for spring sports will be accepted after Jan 31.
Once your renewal payment is processed your officiating permit for the upcoming school year will be issued.
If you have not received your permit by JULY 15:
1. Check with your credit card company or bank to insure that your payment was processed.
2. Call or Email Ben Ferree (email@example.com) at the OHSAA office at 614-267-2502 ext. 110 if payment was made, but no permit was received.
