Congratulations to James “JT” Thomas, who represented the SGVFOA in the State Regional Finals and who will also be representing us in the State Finals this weekend! Check out our playoffs page for more details.
The 2017 playoffs list has been posted. Congratulations to those officials who earned a spot on the list. Please remember that making the list is an honor and is not a guarantee of actually being assigned to a playoff game.
Please see the presentation below on the proper protocol for using the O2O communication devices.
The 2017 calendar has been tentatively set. Meetings will be at San Marino High School, unless otherwise noted, and our meeting dates are:
- 7/15 (Victory Park)
- 8/15, 8/22, 8/29
- 9/12, 9/19, 9/26
- 10/3 (makeup), 10/17 (makeup)
- 11/14 (7-man mechanics, by invite only).
The SGVFOA is looking for military veterans to become football officials. Through Battlefields to Ballfields, a program started by Mike Pereira, veterans are provided “an opportunity to integrate back into their communities through officiating and scholarships.” The foundation will pay for uniforms, dues, and insurance, and will provide a mentor to help veterans move up the officiating ladder.
The final newsletter of 2016 deals with the concept of clean hands, preparation, fumbles, mechanics for the deep wings, and “crunch time”. Access the newsletter here.
