SAN DIEGO COUNTY FOOTBALL OFFICIALS ASSOCIATION - THE WEEKLY BULL – November 17, 2021
Make Up Meeting in 2021 – As I do the final report to the board in March of everyone’s attendance and test scores, I will contact anyone who shows up as needing more meetings or to take a test. In doing that, I will work with individuals who are coming up “just short” and provide another opportunity to meet the requirements. Sorry for any inconvenience and if you don’t hear from me between now and February, consider your attendance and testing completed.
7-Man Mechanics Meeting – Tonight is the 7-Man Mechanics Workshop for all officials who are working a 7-man semifinal and/or final.
