Train Today For A Better Game Tomorrow!

Train Today For A Better Game Tomorrow!

Take the steps to improve your individual rules knowledge, learn advanced film breakdown techniques, and growing your officiating network.

With support from UNM, the NMOA, NFHS, and NFL Grassroots program have partnered together to help with the shortage of high school football officials in New Mexico. 

With this in mind, Behind The Flag has organized a 2022 Spring Football Officials Forum on April 1st and April 2nd at UNM Dreamstyle Stadium. The forum is intended to recruit and retain NMOA high school officials, provide classroom and on-field training, and networking opportunities for those interested in officiating at the next level. 

The forum will be tough by current D1 and DII Football officials actively officiating in the Mountain West, Conference USA, Rocky Mountain and LoneStar Conferences. 

We will cover film break down, officiating philosophies, NFHS rules, and mechanics. 

This Forum will also have guests NFL Officials and College Coordinators speakers to discuss how to advance your officiating career. That the next step in your officiating path to success!
