Each year, the SGVFOA gives awards to deserving officials. In 2011, the Joe Conte, Sr. award was conceived to award officials who give back to officiating with all their heart. Joe was the first recipient of the award. He was known as "The Godfather" and officiated for over fourty years. To read about Joe Conte, Sr., please click here.

In 2014, Ernie Dominguez retired from an illustrious career of officiating. He loved to teach new officials, which he did for decades. Ernie is beloved by all in officiating. To honor him, the SGVFOA put his namesake on the rookie of the year award, making it the Ernie Dominguez Rookie of the Year Award.
