MIAA Football Officiating Camps

The MIAA Conference will have two football officiating camps in the spring of 2020. The two camps we had last year not only helped improve the MIAA staff they also helped the Heart of America, GPAC, Jayhawk Junior College, and the KCAC. Also, many High School officials improved their officiating skills. The camps helped generate a lot of interest in college football officiating. Our goal is to help any High School, or College football official to be the best they can be. Through these camps we are able to generate a list of potential officials that are ready to move to the next level in officiating. Both camps will be informative, educational, with an emphasis on training and helping each official reach their potential. We wanted to have two camps so you would have achoice of dates to attend, as everyone seems to be very busy in the springtime.
