Registration for the 2023 season
Although the ArbiterSports database is able to accept registrations 365 days a year, it is recommended that seasonal officials complete registrations well in advance of the start of the season to allow for processing time of each background check.
Background Check and Registration
- Click on the MIAA logo above to visit the ArbiterSports Registration page and follow the instructions.
- Select all sports for which you wish to register and click the REGISTER button.
- Follow directions and complete all information and consents. A photo is not required. If you already have an Arbiter account, it will recognize your email once you type it in, then follow all directions.
Registration Only/Previously Completed Background Check
- All officials must register annually – $10 per sport. Returning officials must confirm pre-populated information and complete all steps of the registration process (see steps above under “New Officials”). Please check and/or correct all contact information.
In order to finalize your registration you will need to once again consent to the background check in step 5 of the registration process, even though you have already been approved. During the final payment step you will not be charged for another background check nor will it be run again. Approved background checks are valid for three years.
How do you know if you have been approved?
To check for background check approval status, sign in to your personal Arbiter account. In the Central Hub area select the Eligibility Tab.
If you are listed as eligible for your selected sport(s), your background check has been completed and approved. If no status is indicated, your approval is still in process.
How can I request a copy of the background check report?
