Welcome to the web site for the South Florida Football Officials Association.  Our site is dedicated to bringing our members and the organizations we service the most up to the minute information.  Our Association, through its members, provides quality, trained and impartial contest officials to area youth football leagues.

We are also proud to host web site information regarding our sister organization the Greater Miami Athletic Conference Football Officials Association that provide FHSAA Certified Officials for high school contests in Miami-Dade County.  Both groups work together to provide top notch officials.

Members, organizations and visitors are encouraged to check this website from time to time for updates, meetings, game schedules, assignments, and other important information...
2019 SEASON IS ALREADY 3 WEEKS IN AND WHILE WE LOST A WEEKEND OF GAMES, WE CAN COUNT OUR BLESSINGS. OTHERS NOT SO LUCKY.

While we may be a month into the season we are only 3 weeks into the Xtreme and just opened Pop Warner season. Hurricane Dorian was a nasty category 5 hurricane and lucky for us it veered north and spared us from a direct hit. The Bahamian islands of Grand Bahama and Abacos were not. Looking at the images we can definitely count our blessings. Please keep those friendly folks in your thoughts and prayers. Help out with a donation, relief supplies or by helping out in some other way.

WE HAVE A MISSION

Do you know what the SFFOA's mission is. Every top notch organization has a mission that is encompassed in its Mission Statement. Our mission simply stated is to provide well trained, qualified and impartial contest officials to area youth football leagues. How we get there is entirely up to you our members. We each have to set out to honor our mission and to achieve this we must be focused and be of a single vision. Our Vision as an organization can be broken down into three short statements "Make It Safe, Be There, Get It Right"

OFF SEASON COLLEGE CAMPS AND FHSAA CLINICS
ARE AN IMPORTANT PART OF OUR IMPROVEMENT

Officials if you have any plans to advance to the next level or are really serious about just getting better, make it a point to go to an off season camp or clinic. A camp or clinic with a field component is a great way to have someone at a higher level or more experience evaluate your skills and offer constructive feedback to help you improve. It is not all field and class work we do have some time to get to know some of our brethren, and some others from higher levels and other parts of the state or country. A word of caution though, go with an open mind and while there is a chance that you may be discovered and get an opportunity to work at a higher level, the most important reason you are there is to get better!

Over the last few years SFFOA members Mike Brown, Carlos Guzman, Dongray Johnson, Kevin McLeroy, Gabriel Quintana, Clem Quinones, Ariel Rodriguez, Yurier Sanz and Bill Steiner where hired by college conferences after attending one or more camps during the off season. Take advantage of them and talk with them about their experiences if you a chance and are serious about moving up.

Keep your eyes on this section and we will try to generate a list of camps and dates for our members.

Ralph Lewis at FHSAA Finals

RALPH LEWIS MEMORIAL BLOW THE WHISTLE ON CANCER CAMPAIGN
 
The SFFOA and GMACFOA have learned first hand that cancer knows no bounderies and comes in many forms.      In Ralph's memory we will continue to work towards finding a cure for the disease that took him from us way too soon.
 
We will never give up Ralph until we find a cure!

Our efforts have only begun click here to make a donation that will be made in Ralph's memory to the Blow the Whistle on Cancer.

 

HELP US KEEP YOU IN THE LOOP!
 
Off-season is generally filled with happening good and not so good.  Some of us got married, still lot's of kids being born to our members and sadly some of us lost a loved one.  Last year we were touched by the death of a colleague and hopefully hurricane season will spare us as well.
 
We try to send out an e-mail sharing the good news or expressing our sorrow whenever we now something.  It may also be something worth posting on our website.  Please let us know when there is something worth sharing so we can keep others in the loop.

SFFOA TO CONTINUE USE OF ARBITER.
 
Officials will now be able to track both youth league and high school assignments using arbiter game assignment software.  Arbiter the first name in game assignment software has been used by the GMAC for all major sports for three years now.  The SFFOA got off to an fun start when youth league came around but we persevered and we were able to take advantage to assign over 1,400 games during 2016. Members will continue to see their assignments, accept or decline their assignments and update their availability on their home computer and in the age of the phone app it has a telphone application for an additional charge for use on you iPhone, Android or Blackberry.  Esential for our members is a working and useable e-mail address as we will no longer support the assignments page on this website.  Leagues and teams will also be able to view their schedule and assignments using the software
