CFOA Newsletter #3

Today starts the football season! (Actually, there were some games yesterday, but my first game is today!) Our education continues during the season, so here's another CFOA newsletter. This week's edition deals with the passing game, distance vs. angles, equipment, sideline management and consistency, and kickers becoming runners.

CFOA Newsletter #2

Here's the new CFOA newsletter. This issue deals with correcting a down, force, "Ten Commandments of Officiating", "Why We Officiate", pace of play, free-blocking zone, and pre-snap routine.

Position Guides

I have added position guides to the website. These are materials to supplement, not replace, our mechanics book. It's a great idea to print them out and study them before your games and bring to your pregames. They can be found on our mechanics page.

Instructional Chairman's Message

Bobby Kennedy, the IC of the CFOA, will be sending out a biweekly CFOA Newsletter. This is a great tool to keep us updated with current issues that come up during the season. This week's issue deals with risk minimization, use of the whistle, rule changes, working with head coaches, and "the seven c's of officiating".

Website updates and study guide sessions

The website is nearly fully functional now. I've added the Fredie Landinguin Memorial Scholarship application, the Constitution and Bylaws, board members, board minutes, game cards, and lots of other stuff. I'm planning on adding awards next. If there's anything that you think I should include, please let me know.

The calendar has also been updated with all of our study guide sessions and our meetings, both for first-year and veteran officials. The veteran's calendar can also be found on Arbiter.

 

Website Updates and Study Guide

I'm slowly getting the website up-to-date with all the information that was on the old site. I've now updated the calendar and added information about the board of directors, instructors, and insurance. Click the tabs above for that information.

On another note, the study guide is now available to take on Arbiter and will close at 11:59 PDT on 8/23/15. As soon as I hear about study guide sessions, I will post them on the calendar and on Arbiter.

Testing

Most of our testing will be done on SGVFOA's Central Hub on Arbiter this year, including the study guide (which is available as a PDF now), weekly tests, and maybe even the classification exam. Click here or on the testing tab to access PDFs of the tests as they become available.

Study Guide

We will be doing the study guide through SGVFOA's Central Hub on Arbiter again this year, and it is ready for you take on the now! You can download the PDF of the study guide here. Happy studying!
