It’s been some time since we have updated the news on the ISOAB website . . . so here goes.
2013 was a great year:
Total assignments for the 2013 season: 190 (this figure does NOT include spring games,
pre-season games or conference tournament games!)
MAAC Women’s Conference Tournament held at ESPN Wide World of Sports,
New comer to the MAAC, Monmouth University women won the tournament. Congratulations to Coach Krissy Turner and the Lady Hawks.
And Congratulations to all conference winners in 2013.
We had a few glitches, but fortunately none affected the outcome of any games.
2014 is starting out of the gate at record speed!
So far this year, we have conducted 2 spring clinics in conjunction with spring games at:
Monmouth U-West Long Branch, NJ
Our central Florida clinic was held on UCF campus. Our appreciation to Coach Sahaydak and one of her players for attending our clinic. They gave us their view of officiating and what they expect from us on the field!
Our NJ clinic was held in the summer White House of President Woodrow Wilson. We’ve been invited back for next year already! Thank You Coach Turner
We have assigned a total of 36 spring games
RefTalk is being utilized by 4 conferences this year! These conferences/schools have purchased these units and WANT THEM USED by officials on their games.
It is with great pleasure to announce the addition of the SKYLINE Conference!
As we welcome the SKYLINE Conference to our family, we extend a warm welcome to each of the schools in that conference!

pOLICIES & PROCEDURES:
It goes without saying, NISOA and ISOAB has policies and procedures that must be followed.
1. When you accept a game, you are in contract with the assignor.
2. You must ALWAYS be in contact with your crew. Confirm your assignments with your crew at least 48 hours prior to your game.
3. You must arrive at the game site at least 1 hour prior to KO. If you are stuck in traffic or encountering car trouble – CALL YOUR CREW, let them know your status. Also, call your assignor, let them know your status as well. It could save an embarrassing situation. There just might be a school nearby whose game is over an official from there can easily step in and help cover your games until you get there. Just CALL!!!
4. You must always be professional from the time you accept a game until you leave the site of the competition.
5. Professionalism must be directed towards your fellow officials, the event staff members, coaches and players – AT ALL TIMES!
6. Do NOT call schools or conferences for payments! Call ISOAB!!!
If at any time, you have a question or concern, please call the ISOAB office.
Thank you for all your support. Stay healthy and in shape for the 2014 season!
