The 2023 season has arrived! Pre-season scrimmages are taking place where players and officials alike are preparing for the regular season.
Meetings have just begun but there has been a lot going on within the NDFOA.
During the summer, the NDFOA Fitness Committee hosted numerous off-season conditioning sessions for the membership. The committee has put together some great material for all to take advantage in getting in game shape for the upcoming season.
The Recruiting and Retention Committee has been out in full force signing up potential recruits and hosted multiple New Officials classes to help grow our numbers. Special thanks to Smitty for running our new officials' class.
Our annual All Day Clinic was held on August 5, 2022 at Caravel. The group went over rule changes and points of emphasis for the season, worked through a mechanics session, listened to a presentation from new DIAA ED David Baylor, and presented some awards to members of the organization.
Weekly membership meetings began on August 16, 2023. The group heard a special presentation from 30-year NBA official Tony Brothers. He talked about the importance of using common sense while officiating and controlling what you can control. Thanks to Emile Brown for setting this up!
The official start to the season is just a few days away. Good luck to all!
