Whether your assignment is in the trenches, in the pocket, or on the sidelines, as a football official, positioning and mechanics are paramount to calling a clean, fair, and safe game. With Officiating Football, your assignment just got easier. You can be sure you're in the right place at the right time to make the right call.
Based on officiating mechanics devised and endorsed by the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS), Officiating Football is the definitive guide for new and experienced high school referees. Included are guidelines for what's expected of you as an official, officiating procedures and responsibilities, and pre- and postgame duties.
Officiating mechanics for four- and five-person crews are supported by more than 75 photos and illustrations of field positioning, movement, and signals. Real-life cases demonstrate correct rulings, point out common officiating errors and how to avoid them, and challenge you to make the right call in game situations. A glossary of key football terms is also included. Officiating Football is not a rules bookit's a practical resource for implementing correct mechanics as developed and approved by the NFHS.
