  • October 28th – This first meeting will be our pre-season organizational meeting.  This will be the only meeting dedicated to policies and procedures and expectations for the coming season.  The remainder of the meetings will focus on instruction and correcting any issues we may be having on the court during the season.  
    •    Rules books will be available and we will be taking orders for the VHSL state event pass and orders for board jackets. If you are a third year official this season it is now time to purchase a jacket if you have not already done so. For these officials the board will pay 50% of the cost of your first jacket and the remainder will be deducted from your next paycheck. If you are in need of a replacement jacket you can place your order at the meeting.  Get your uniform items in order, it won’t be long before the season starts.
