Registration – Last year on May 8th we had 132 certified officials signed up. This year we have 114. That means three fewer crews to work Friday nights! Please sign up if you have not done so. Please recruit a new member. Thank you to the 114 who have signed up and to those who have recruited a new official!
Fees – We are scheduled to make $90/$88 for a varsity game, and $78/$77 for JV/Frosh. Seeing that recruiting is getting more difficult, the Board has submitted a proposal to the CIF for an enhancement to these fees. Remember, we were not satisfied with the final offer last year and chose to “work-to-the-contract” as a way to cut costs to our officials. Thanks to Bob Duggan’s negotiating, we were able to institute travel fees which helped with those costs to officials. It certainly would help us to get a more reasonable raise in game fees! Fingers crossed and thank you Board for all of your efforts and support for the SDCFOA.
NCAA Classes to Start – Are you interested in becoming a college official? It is best if you have completed your 5th year of officiating and your rating place you in the upper half of the Association. If you are interested, our first meeting will be Tuesday May 23rd at 6:30 pm at Torrey Pines HS. Park in the front of the school on Del Mar Heights Rd. and walk up the stairs on the right-hand side. The lecture hall is in the back of the school near the Gym entrance.
Girls Flag Football – Officials from the SDCFOA will be assigned to these games if the official indicates he/she is wanting to work these games. Schools will be asked to combine these games with the JV, Frosh or Varsity tackle football games or to play multiple games on days other than Friday and Saturday. Attached is a copy of the rules from the State CIF. You will see that every page is page 10…I hope that is not an omen!
