Ask yourself these questions:

  • Do you have a true passion for football?
  • When watching college and professional football, do you find yourself breaking down referee calls on the field?
  • Do you watch the referees and their positioning more than the players when watching football games in person?
  • Are you able to watch a game objectively without rooting interests?
  • Are you committed to do whatever it takes to become a football referee and help make a difference in New Jersey high school football officiating?

If you answered YES to all of these questions - you obviously came here for a reason, and that is to become a proud future member of the NJFOA-North.
