2019 COVOA Meetings

Hello COVOA Members!


Did you save the date?  What?  Yes, our extended training is coming up on August 17, 2019.  We are planning a great time together.  Watch for more information to come!


Don’t forget to take advantage of the opportunity to attend one of the OAOA Regional Trainings.

The clinic on Saturday, July 20, 2019 at Marist High School has the OCEP Clinic from 9am to noon, and then a bonus opportunity to attend the OCEP Principles Course from 1:00 to 2:30pm.  If you have never taken the OCEP Principles Course, the OSAA Officials handbook says you need to take one within the first three years of officiating.  

The other OAOA Clinic is Saturday, August 10th at St. Mary’s High School in Medford, from 9am to Noon. This clinic is NOT offering the OCEP Principles Course.

These clinics are always worth your time.


The Board has set up our meeting schedule for the 2019 Volleyball season and we want you to have this information for your summer planning.  Remember ALL of the pre-season training occurs in August, so please plan to attend all of the meetings.

Registration for 2019



2019 OSAA Fall sports registration is now open 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:  Football $71.00, Volleyball $71.00, Soccer $65.00

Packets for Oregon Officials will be mailed directly to each official starting on Thursday, June 27, 2019 using the information you provided during the registration process.  District III (Idaho) and Lower Columbia (Washington) Officials will not be mailed packets but will receive an Oregon patch from your Assignor.

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.
