Free 1-day basketball refereeing clinic to be held Oct. 15 in Mankato

NEW ULM — The Mankato Area Officials Association (MAOA) is hosting a free one-day clinic for anyone who is interested in officiating basketball this winter.

As most are aware, there is a desperate need for new officials. Anyone that thinks they might be interested is invited to join the MAOA on Saturday, October 15, from 1-3 p.m. at Immanuel Lutheran High School in Mankato.

The MAOA will walk those interested through the basics of officiating and even get them registered as an official with the Minnesota State High School League. The MAOA will also help new officials get assigned games this winter if they so desire.

Everyone who attends gets a free whistle. Please contact Dave Bendix at 507-236-9898 for more information.

Remember, we cannot have the stars without the stripes.
