Neil Kaplan, a 4 year veteran of the OCFOA, was hired this summer to officiate in the Polska Futbal Liga – The Polish American Football League. He officiated games throughout the country as a flank. “My debut in the world of international football officiating could not have gone better,” said Kaplan, “the continuous training that I’ve received during my officiating career from Andy Bruer and Mark Andrews and the rest of the OCFOA leadership prepared me well for this experience. The solid foundation in mechanics and rules interpretation that I have from my years officiating in Orange County made the transition to the league in Poland very smooth.”
Registration for all returning, transferring and new officials is now open. If you have officiated high school football for any association in the past, please register at: https://ocfoa.org/registration/ . The dues for 2020 remain $160.
All officials must be covered by official’s liability insurance either through NASO or NFHS for the entirety of the 2020 season. If you have existing insurance through NASO or NFHS, be prepared to supply your membership number.
NFHS coverage obtained through OCFOA last season will not cover you for this season, you must renew your coverage. Once again, coverage through NFHS will cost $25 and will be added to your membership dues if you do not have existing officials liability insurance through NFHS or NASO.
New officials can register here: https://ocfoa.org/first-year-registration/ . I encourage you to invite your friends and neighbors to join the brotherhood of football officials.
We have multiple payment options available. If you have any questions or issues with regard to payment or the registration process itself, please let me know.
