RE: OPENING DAY – KSOA MEMBERSHIPS 2020-2021
Kansas Sports Officials,
Opening day for KSOA Memberships for our second year of operations was May 4th and we encourage you to join or rejoin KSOA this year. Your membership entitles you to a new 2020-2021 Membership card (free entrance to HS games in your sport, observing other officials to enhance learning), Observations and Written Evaluations by veteran officials, HUDL video when available in your sport, Access to mentors, LOA make-up meetings, Invitations to pre-season and post-season social events, and an Invitation to our association annual meeting.
Our fall and winter seasons went well in 2019 and we were encouraged by 622 officials who joined KSOA in our first year. For our spring officials (baseball, softball, soccer) a credit for a portion of your dues is explained below. All officials who are receiving a partial credit were emailed a few weeks ago.

If you paid your dues for 2019-2020 and you signed up to officiate one spring sport (BB, SB), then you have a $25 credit when you join and pay this year. If you are a two-sport official who missed out on BB or SB, your credit will be $10. Soccer officials who worked last fall but missed out on their spring season, your credit is $15.
THANK YOU in advance for supporting our Local Officials Association and we are looking forward to YEAR TWO for KSOA.
