Hello Potential CFOA Basketball Officials,
I hope everyone is staying safe and following the CDC guidelines. I’m sorry it’s taken me a little while to get back to some of you, but as you know nothing was normal this past year. I know things are starting to move in the right direction and I’m look forward to seeing you on the court next season.
Our Educational Team has been hard at work putting together our training program that we feel will benefit every skill set.
- Our rookie (1st year) official’s class will begin in August. Class registration will begin July 12, 2021 and will end July 30, 2021. A non-refundable $50 registration fee must be paid; we can only take 25 new students.
- Transfer official’s classes will begin in September. Transfer officials (less than 5 years of experience) will have to pay a non-refundable $50 registration fee and must attend 3 online/in-person (depending on COVID protocol) classes and 2 on the floor classes.
- Veteran transfer officials (5 or more years of experience) must also attend 3 online/in-person classes and 2 on the floor classes.
Yours in service,
