Coach Certification of Officials
Step 1–Become KAAC-certified
If you are a coach that has been certified either at the KAAC Conference or at a KAAC-sponsored state clinic, you may certify the required officials you need to participate in KAAC Quick Recall. You may certify other officials or assistant coaches, but not another Quick Recall head coach. All Quick Recall head coaches must be certified at a KAAC-sponsored clinic.
We recommend this process for experienced coaches only. New coaches should send uncertified officials to a state clinic.
Step 2–Conduct your training
Refer to Appendix B in the Quick Recall Manual
Use the appropriate Quick Recall Training PowerPoints to supplement your training.
Step 3–Have your official take the online quiz
After your training, your official must successfully complete an online quiz before receiving a certification number. The following topics are covered on the quiz:
- Duties of officials
- Inquiry process time frame
- Overtime period parameters
- When a timeout may be called
- Match timing parameters–all grade levels
- Bonus questions–who may answer, designation procedure, bounce-back
- Moderator error
- Interrupted tossups
- Scoring–point value, symbols
The quiz is 20 questions and takes just a few minutes to complete. A score of 16 is passing. There are no other restrictions on the quiz; you are free to use your Manual, and you may take the quiz as many times as necessary.
Make sure your official has your Quick Recall certification number. They will need it to complete their registration. By clicking below, your official affirms that he or she has been trained in Quick Recall rules by you or another KAAC-certified coach.
