The New Officials Basketball Class prepares the participant to officiate high school basketball games. This seven-week free course includes classroom instruction on the rules of high school basketball and appropriate IHSA officiating mechanics. Officiating philosophy for the high school game is also discussed. The course incorporates over 100 video clips and numerous review sessions of NFHS rules. This class is ideal for basketball officials with zero to four years of basketball officiating experience. Officials new to the IHSA will be able to obtain an officiating license at a reduced rate. Completion of the class will allow the participant to earn IHSA Level 1 Clinic Credit. Students must attend a minimum of five sessions to be eligible for clinic credit.
