GHSA Application to Register as an Official
Read this before completing the GHSA application:
Every official in their first year with Heritage that officiates a GHSA sanctioned game is required to complete a GHSA Application.
  • If you umpired high school baseball last year with Heritage, you do not need to submit a GHSA application for baseball registration.
  • If you umpired high school softball last year with Heritage, you do not need to submit a GHSA application for softball registration.

​A GHSA Application is good for as long as you umpire the same sport with Heritage.
  • If you miss a year, change associations or are a new member, you must submit a new GHSA Application

​Using the guidelines above, GHSA Applications are required BEFORE you officiate a GHSA game.
  • If you fail to submit a GHSA Application as required, you will not be assigned to GHSA games nor will you have the ability to access the required GHSA on-line clinic(s) and test(s).

If you are required to submit a GHSA Application:
  • Make sure your information is accurate. The information you submit on your GHSA Application is a part of your permanent record.
  • Make sure the spelling (including punctuation and capitalization) ​is correct.
  • Double-check your social security number. The last five (5) digits of your social security number represent your GHSA ID number.
  • At the end of the GHSA Application, you will type your name as your signature. Your typed name represents your signature.
