Is there an application form to be completed?

 

     There are two - (ADOBE Reader required get adobe )

 
                   - one registers you with EVFOA  (.pdf)  
                   - the second with the Georgia High School Association  (.pdf)                          
             (disregard the $28.00 GHSA fee shown on the application - EVFOA will pay this for you...)

  How much time will I be expected to commit?

     You should attend all Monday night meetings.  You will also be expected to participate in pre-season scrimmages and work sub-varsity games assigned for   Tuesday and Thursday afternoons (some Saturdays as well), and Varsity clocks on Friday nights. 

     You will also devote time on your own to studying Rules and Mechanics.   Rules and Mechanics training materials will be provided to you after you've registered.

  When will I be paid for the games I've worked?

     Checks will be issued at EVFOA's annual banquet held in December.

  What kind of training is offered?

     Training begins on "Day One" and is ongoing - year after year.   You'll expand your  rules knowledge through self-study materials (provided for you), weekly meetings and through applied, "on-field" experience. 

     Field experience will begin with pre-season scrimmages and continues with sub-varsity games on Thursday afternoons and some Saturdays.  You'll be assigned to work these games with veteran officials who will be providing you with feedback throughout the season.

  What will it cost to get started?

     Annual dues are $90.00.  This must be paid at registration.  After your first season, the dues fee is withheld from your check. 

     You can pick up a "starter" equipment package at around $150.00 through mail order from Honigs.   Honigs is the only supplier of the knickers we now use.

  When can I expect to be on the field on Friday nights?

     Work all of your assigned sub-varsity games and learn the rules - these  two items are key to starting your Friday night Varsity assignments.
