Ned Doyle, MIAA Assistant Director, has announced information about official’s background check. This announcement can be found in the MIAA Game Officials Spring Newsletter 2015 (see newsletter below). The MIAA Board of Directors has approved a policy to conduct background checks for all game officials, beginning in the fall of 2015. The implementation of this policy is currently being developed and more information will be sent to all game officials within the next few weeks. There will be an invitation sent to Board Representatives (presidents/secretaries) for a late April summit to discuss the entire policy and to explain implementation procedures. There is also information about student and coach disqualifications, concussions, and game tournament formats.
