REMINDER: Do not use a tablet or mobile device to take the rules meeting—your attendance will not be recorded if done so. We ask that you use a desktop/laptop computer. Please enter the required credentials with the correct permit number. Once you have reached the final slide, you have completed the rules meeting—please know that we no longer send confirmation emails. You may screenshot the final slide to keep for your records, if you wish. You may check your myOHSAA profile for attendance verification; however, it takes several days for the attendance to appear on myOHSAA. You will be sent reminder emails from OHSAA prior to the deadline if you have not received credit for the required rules meeting.

PLEASE READ: Officials MUST have their ID Number to take the rules meeting. Attendance will not be recorded without the ID Number.
REMINDER: Do not take rules meetings on tablets or mobile devices. Attendance will not be recorded.
