Use this card at each match, one for each team. Officials should give one to each team, home and away so they can rate performance of the match. The coach or AD will use these cards as a reference when they rate officials online at MHSAA.com.
In order to keep your patches from running red dye on your white shirt...
Soak your MHSAA patch and your flag insignia (if you have one) in 1/2 cup of vinegar and 1 cup of cool water. Soak overnight in separate containers, rinse and air dry before attaching them to your white shirt.
HELP! I'M STUCK IN TRAFFIC! Remember the importance of carrying your schedule and the phone numbers of your fellow officials. Call or text ahead if you know you are going to be delayed. In addition, if you are the one that's already at a match, leave your phone out until your crew has arrived. They may be trying to call you! Once the whole crew has arrived, turn it off and put it away.

All you need to do is contact Kent Neitzert and give him your email address. He will add you to the message that comes out each month, which will give you the information you need to connect to the meeting. Thanks to the SCOA for letting us join in on their meetings!
With heavy hearts we announce the loss of one of our longtime volleyball officials. John Garrison was a very kind and considerate man who would do whatever he could to make the world of sports a great experience for all children. He will be missed on the court and within our family of officials. Rest peacefully John.
