Are You Looking for Games to Work During the Off-Season?
There are plenty of games for everyone to work during the off-season to keep your officiating skills from getting rusty, to help you prepare for upcoming camps, to enjoy some time on the court with friends, and of course to make a little $$. Please contact any of the following off-season assignors to find what fits your schedule with off-season leagues and tourneys:
The 2017 Offseason Camps Info page has been updated. Be sure to check out the Offseason Camps Info page here: OFFSEASON CAMPS 2017
Camps are important every year for continuing offseason training, to stay current with officiating trends, and receive feedback from top officials. Everyone can improve their skills. There are numerous camps offered during the summer.
Don’t forget to apply for a camp scholarship. Scholarships are open to current members of Denver Area 8 in good standing. Scholarships are paid out as a reimbursement AFTER camp attendance has been confirmed, you must pay in advance for the camp you wish to attend. See the Scholarship Application page for the application and all rules and requirements for camp scholarships.
Jeff Gotto is our new Area Director for Denver Area 8, joining Rob Semin and Donnie Martinez, and Regional Director Denise Lopez. Jeff will serve a 3 year term from 2017-2020.
IAABO offers a voluntary (not mandatory) insurance program for all officials who are members of IAABO. In order to participate in the insurance program, you must have paid your dues for the current year and be registered with IAABO. The insurance program covers medical costs AFTER your own insurance in the case of injury. It also covers game fee reimbursement (the insurance that we receive from NFHS does not cover lost game fees), as well as General Liability.
The insurance period is from May to May. The cost for the year of coverage is only $7.50 per individual. Please consider this insurance as it is a great value! For more info on this insurance, please click here >>> IAABO Insurance Program
