2017 Notes

Now that July has arrived, all association members are required to update their concussion certifications. Please note that you CANNOT work any scrimmages or regular season games without a valid completed concussion certificate turned in.

The link to the concussion course on NFHSLearn.com is here: https://nfhslearn.com/courses/61064/concussion-in-sports

Registration and login is required on there before you are able to watch the videos and take the test for certification.

Once completed, all officials should send a copy of the PDF certificate to Steve Peloso via e-mail at steve.sfoa@gmail.com.


As a reminder - ALL VARSITY games are required to be officiated wearing the sublimated 2 1/4 inch shirts, both for short and long sleeves.

The official hat to be worn remains the same; all hats must have the NJFOA logo (patched or embroidered) on front. Referee wears the white version, while the remainder of the crew wears the standard black hat with white piping.

All crew members are expected to be in compliance.


Please make sure to check the NJFOA-North website for the mandatory NJSIAA Rules Interpretation Meeting dates and locations. The meeting scheduled for our geographic area will be held at 7:00 PM on Thursday, August 24 at Passaic County Technical Institute in Wayne, NJ.

ALL MEMBERS MUST ATTEND A STATE INTERPRETATION MEETING TO BE CONSIDERED ELIGIBLE FOR POST-SEASON ASSIGNMENTS.


If you are free agent and looking to get on a crew or just fill in week by week, please contact me and we will try get your availability to the crew chiefs and assignors. In addition, make sure to visit the forum on our website (login required) to post your availability and/or needs to the general membership.

Jim Conte
