Basketball Coaches Online Rules Meeting (Click Here)

Online Rules Meeting Problem Troubleshooting

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. 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. Your Athletic Director can check the myOHSAA page for attendance verification; however, it takes several days for the attendance to appear on myOHSAA. Your Athletic Director will be sent reminder emails from OHSAA prior to the deadline if your school has not received credit for the required rules meeting.

You must enter ALL credentials to receive credit, the most important being your School ID #. You can find a list of all OHSAA School ID #’s here: http://www.ohsaa.org/members/school_id.htm
