This Sports Official Independent Contractor Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between HRBOA and me. There are no other promises or conditions of any other agreement, whether oral or written, unless they are attached specifically to this agreement. If any provision of this agreement shall be held invalid or unenforceable for any reason, the remaining provision shall continue to be valid and enforceable. If a court of law finds any provision of this agreement is invalid or unenforceable, but that by limiting such provision it would become valid and enforceable, then such provision shall be deemed to be written, construed, and enforced under those limitations.

Officials who can’t or won’t sign such a statement may not register with VHSL. Records must be maintained at the local association level. Local associations may have to provide documentation to schools under contract verifying that any official assigned to work games has a signed statement on file.
