New Officials Information


Welcome to the Northeast Tennessee Wrestling Officials Association! We are very excited that you have taken an interest, and look forward to working with you on your journey of officiating local High School wrestling.  Below is a guide for how to begin officiating, as well as what to expect throughout the process.  Please feel free to ask any and all questions along the way, as our members look forward to helping you in every way possible. 


Go to the TSSAA website and select the Contest Officials heading.  Once there select Official's Registration and then click on the "Begin Registration" link which will take you to the Registration page where you will select Wrestling 2023-2024.  If you already have an Arbiter Sports account be sure to sign in accordingly so that it will bring up all of your past information.  Follow the instructions. If you are signed in most everything should be automatically filled in for you, but you still have to answer a few questions and make payment using a credit card.   **Be sure to select the correct  association when you get to that part -- Under Wrestling select "NE Tennessee Wrestling Officials Assn".  To be fully registered, you will need to complete the registration, pay the registration fee and pass the background check which will be completed by TSSAA after you register & pay.  The Official's Exam is no longer part of the registration process but will be required by our association for new officials and/or officials new to our association. 

NFHS Exam Instructions (This exam is required for all new officials. This includes first year and first year in the association).


NOTE: This list serves as a general guide.  If you have any questions of what you may need to work or pack, please feel free to reach out to any veteran official for assistance.
