AOS Updates

Update from AOS President Jeff Schwarz – 9/21/22

Our football meetings ended Monday, 9/19/22, with a football coaches roundtable.  Our Football VP, John Jakobsze, did a tremendous job getting great speakers and interesting topics.  Right around the corner will be our basketball meetings which are led by our Basketball VP Josh Schroeder.  Josh has also organized an outstanding group of presenters and video clips to help make us better officials.  Check out the schedule on our Basketball News page. 

The meeting in between our two sports is called our Bridge Meeting and will be Monday, September 26th.  This is one of the two times when our football and basketball members meet together.  The other is our banquet in March.  We are excited this year to be partnering with our fellow officials in the NOA.  The meeting will be held at Quentin Road Christian School, 60 Quentin Rd, Lake Zurich, IL 60047 at 7pm.  Our guest will be IHSA Assistant Executive Director Sam Knox.  Sam has great enthusiasm and his talk promises to be informative and interesting.

Afterwards, everyone is invited to go to Chasers Sports Bar & Grill, 830 S Rand Rd, Lake Zurich, IL 60047 to mix with our fellow AOS members and our friends in the NOA.  We hope you can join us!
