Officiating opened to high schoolers for sub-varsity contests; scrimmage travel loosened

BOONE, Iowa – In an effort to increase the potential pool of registered officials and better include interested students, the Iowa High School Athletic Association will begin allowing high school students to serve as officials for sub-varsity high school contests in 2019-20. Current policies allow high schoolers to officiate seventh- and eighth-grade events or sub-varsity soccer matches. The change proposed with the officials’ advisory committee and approved Monday by the IHSAA’s Board of Control aims to help an active group of young officials gain invaluable experience and education, and allow school administrators to more easily schedule and staff sub-varsity contests.
