Saturday, Nov 3Inter-Athletic Council of Officials (IACO), will be hosting our annual basketball clinic at Wheaton North High School, which is located at 701 W Thomas Rd, Wheaton, IL 60187 Doors will open at 7:00 AM and the clinic starts at 8:30 AM and is expected to end at 12:30 pm. Vendors will be available until 130 pm. Online pre-registration before Friday, Nov 2 is $25 or $30 at the door.

Attending the IACO Basketball Clinic should be a high priority for all Chicagoland IHSA basketball officials. Most of the instructors are IHSA Certified Clinicians or officials who have worked the IHSA State Finals. The IHSA has implemented some mechanics changes that will be presented at the clinic. All current rule and mechanic changes will be covered throughout the day.

The clinic will run on a 3 track system which is actually three clinics in one. Track 1 for new officials, Track 2 for 2-person mechanics, and Track 3 for 3-person mechanics. You can switch tracks throughout the day. The clinic will begin with Opening Remarks in the Cafeteria at 8:30 AM followed by a 65-minute presentation by IACO Clinic Chairman and IHSA Basketball Rules Interpreter Fred Allman. Fred will go through the rule changes, editorial changes and clarifications, points of emphasis and other information from the IHSA. There may also be some time for questions. Fred’s presentation WILL NOT satisfy the Rules Meeting requirement. YOU MUST VIEW THE ONLINE RULES MEETING TO RECEIVE CREDIT.
