I work HS ball in the local Orlando association, Central Florida Officials Association. Check out the website: http://www.cfoa.com

Just as a heads up the state is trying to get all basketball officials to register before the end of July this year.

You can e-mail me if there's any other information that you need that you can't find. Look forward to seeing you on the floor.

Hey

Thanks man!

I went to the website and checked it out. It seemed like it had a lot more on football season(being as how it's coming up first).

So I really didn't get much information. But I sent the VP an email. So we'll see what happens.

I wanted to ask you a coupl questions if you don't mind.

In Lubbock we paid 50 dollars to join the "chapter". Then we attend a weekly meeting and sign up for games on one of the weeks. Is that how you guys go about doing things? etc?

Thanks
-Go Canes!

Right after I posted ^^^^^above I found some good info on the site. I'm filling out a registration form and I guess I'll go from there.

Thanks for the link, maz. I'll be down there beginning on the 20th. Maybe I'll see if I can get some work in before camp starts.

Sorry for the delay -- been away from my computer for a few days.

Once you join the association, there will be a couple of mandatory meetings to attend before the season starts, as well as the state rules clinic, and rules exam (be sure you register with the state).

The local association will have some training clinics before the season, try to get to these for no other reason than to get seen by the assignor and other veteran officials. You will send in your availability to the assignor and will then get a schedule in the mail once a month or so throughout the season.

Don't get discouraged with the games you'll get at first, it will take a while for the assignor to get to know you, and at what level you can handle.

Feel free to ask any more questions you might have, you can e-mail me if you'd like.
