FALL Officials - (This information will be updated soon)
2023 OSAA Fall sports registration will open June 15th on the OSAA/OAOA Officiating Central Hub. You can access the registration page at the following link: http://osaa.arbitersports.com.
Packet fees are as follows (TBD): Football $, Volleyball $83.00, Soccer $
If you are a multiple sport official during the same season (i. e. officiate football and volleyball), please only register for a single sport at one time (go in and register for football, complete that registration, then go back into the registration and register for volleyball) to help with our transaction accounting. THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP!!!
Packets for Oregon Officials will be mailed directly to each official starting July 2023 using the information you provided during the registration process. While we are not mailing packets until July, you can still go into Arbiter and complete your concussion requirement. Our hope is to have the OSAA Sport specific exam up on arbiter by July 10. You will be given access to the Central Hub and be sent a copy of the digital rule book in order to help with the exam.
It is imperative that you verify all information listed in Arbiter Profile is correct – including your mailing address, DOB, and Social Security Number. Just click the PROFILE tab once you are logged into the system as an Official and review this data to verify accuracy. Failure to update this data will delay the awarding of the appropriate eligibility period so you are encouraged to verify this information before submitting your registration.
If you completed the online registration process last year, using the same email address will simplify the process. Fields will be populated automatically for you on many of the steps – just make any adjustments that may be necessary.
If you have changed any personal information (i.e. mailing address, email address, etc) after registering last year you should login to ArbiterSports using your old email address and password – update your profile with the new information – then complete the registration process.
If your local association uses ArbiterSports as an assigning tool it is essential that you use the same email address that you currently use to sign into ArbiterSports to get your assignments.
