News Highlights - 2017

Dear CFOA Flag Football Officials,

If you have not yet registered for Flag Football with the state and CFOA please do so as soon as possible. The deadline to register for flag football is 2/27/17. We will have a meeting at St. Cloud High School on Saturday, March 4th @ 900am. The tentative plan for this date is 9:00am - 10:00am classroom session, working scrimmages 10:30am to 12:30pm with lunch being served immediately following the scrimmages at 12:45pm.

We are still awaiting word from the state regarding the test situation due to the C2C schools situation. In the meantime, you can contact Roland Taylor 407-855-3035 (Home) 407-701-0563 (Cellular) if you need/want to pick up your rule books before the meeting.

This year we would like everyone to be in the SAME uniform as it looks more professional. This year is going to be our uniform transition year 2017 season. After talking to several associations, we have determined that they have an officials dress code for flag football.

The uniform WILL BE as follows:

  • collared black and white referee shirt
  • black coaches shorts (Honig's has them)
  • black and white piped football hat
  • black socks
  • black belt
  • mostly black shoes/cleats

I have just received the below information from FHSAA, please read and respond/register accordingly.

Good Afternoon,

Please get this information out to your officials. Those officials who have yet to register for a spring sport can go to the official’s page to get registration information ( As of today, we are approximately 1,000 officials short of our average. The deadline is coming up in February. We have had numerous officials tell us they are waiting for the new online system. Please note that the new online system will not be ready prior to the registration deadline. We are planning on having the system ready by June.
