Welcome To The
NJFOA - South / Edward G. Myer Chapter
As a high school sports official, your job is to make sure that between the lines, everyone has a fair shot and the game is played within the rules. Officials protect the integrity of the game that kids love to play by demonstrating qualities like courage, fairness, honesty, uniformity and common sense.
Becoming a high school football official is a terrific hobby, especially for those who love the game of football. You must be able to interact and communicate with players, coaches and other officials. When unexpected moments occur, you will need to remain poised, confident and be able to resolve quickly and professionally. Additionally, you should not only be willing to accept constructive criticism from your colleagues, you must also be able to accept unwelcome objections and complaints from spectators. Our chapter officiates schools in the following New Jersey Counties: Atlantic, Burlington, Camden, Cape May, Cumberland, Gloucester and Salem.
