The Western Washington Football Officials Association (WWFOA) is a non-profit organization established to assign its certified members to officiate and promote the game of football at the recreational, middle school and high school levels throughout the greater Tacoma area and South Puget Sound.
What does it take to become a football official?
While experience as a football official or player is good, it is not required. We conduct a thorough on-field and classroom training program for new officials. Instruction is directed exclusively toward building a solid fooundation of rules, mechanics, and common sense knowledge that will enable you to step on the field at your first game with confidence.
Attendance at pre-season and regular season meetings held once a week are required. During the season you can work as many or as few sub-varsity games as your normal schedule will allow.
Costs associated with becoming a football official included local and state dues. In addition, you are required to have the complete uniform prior to working your first game (programs are available to help mitigate costs).
