The third annual Midwest Football Officials Clinic will be held on March 11th and March 12th. This year's clinic will include in-classroom instruction, mechanics discussion, film review, a segment completely dedicated to Replay, live on-field snaps, and a keynote speech that is sure to get you motivated for the upcoming season.

Who: All High School and College Level Officials are encouraged to attend

What: Classroom and on-field clinic

Cost: $150.00 for the on-field participants (56 available slots) and $100 for classroom only

Saturday, March 11th (9:30am-4:30pm EST) we will meet at Hamilton High School to learn from some of the best officials in the country in a classroom setting. Sunday, March 12th (9:30pm-4:00pm EST), we will finish up our classroom instruction in the morning and then head to the football field to get on-field instruction and live snaps (11-on-11).  This will present an opportunity to have real in-game scenarios with mechanics and foul calls critiqued immediately by NFL and NCAA officials standing right beside you. If you are a "Classroom only" official, you are still able to join us on the field on Sunday to observe and listen to clinician instruction.
