No registrations accepted after June 10.  Registration and payment is due June 10.


Welcome to our website.  We hope that this website will help you learn about what our clinic has to offer. Whether you are brand new to officiating, or a veteran looking to improve, our goal is to offer the best two day learning experience possible. Our clinic is focused on high school football, and mainly five person officiating mechanics. The clinic will consist of small group breakout sessions, video review, and live 11 on 11 full contact scrimmages.

Our 2024 dates are June 24th and 25th. The clinic will be held at Augustana University, in Sioux falls, SD, with scrimmages at the Sanford Sports Complex.

The success of our clinic is directly related to the support of our NFL and NCAA Division I Clinicians.  Clinicians that have committed for previous years clinics include: Brandon Cruse, Monte Tilgner, Ed Camp, Tom Hill, Fred Bryan, Brad Allen, Randy Campbell, Bill LeMonnier, Matt Park, and Frederick Dimpfel.  Also, David Carlsrud (formerly NDHSAA), Justin Ingalls ( SDHSAA and NSIC), Jason Nickleby (MSHSL), Jared Chizek (IHSAA).

We invite you to attend the clinic this year. It promises to be another great one. If you have any questions or comments, please email us at or call Jim Ricketts jr, Clinic Director at 605-351-1161.
