Welcome to the NJFOA-Central Jersey Chapter

The NJFOA (New Jersey Football Officials Association) is a organization dedicated to serving the central New Jersey area with High School football officials.

Why Become a Football Official?

Be involved first hand in the game up close and personal.  Become a positive role model to young adults.  Build relationships and make lifelong friends.  These are just a few reasons to become a high school football official.


As an official, you have to deal with stress and pressure and make split-second decisions.


Are you qualified and able?  Officiating is a very demanding avocation.

  • Are you physically fit?

  • You are constantly moving.

  • You may work outside in the elements. It can be hot, cold, and raining.

  • Are you emotionally fit?

  • Do you take criticism well?

  • Can you stay calm under pressure?

  • Can you commit time to officiating?

  • During the season, you may need to be off work mid-afternoon

  • You will be required to study the rules both during the season and off-season to fully understand them.
