This year’s clinic will be held August 20th at 8:00am at O’Fallon Township High School. Members who have paid their 2022-2023 SAOA dues may attend at no additional cost. For non-members, all officials who attend and pay for the clinic receive a free year of membership in the SAOA. You may pay for the clinic below on this page or in-person via cash or check the day of the clinic.

We will also be hosting a second-chance clinic on August 23rd from 6-10pm at Fire Station 4 located at 1125 S. Illinois Street in Belleville, IL in case you can’t make the clinic on August 20th. Payment is the same for both clinics, and SAOA membership is included with attendance if not already a member.
