Helen Salinas Fundraiser Information

Thanks to all you came out to support Helen and Charlie Salinas during the fundraiser held Saturday, 17 October!

Donations are still being accepted.  See flyer below for further information.



Due to various federal, state and local orders/guidance, including from UIL, TAPPS and TASO, regarding the coronavirus pandemic, there are many changes to the 2020 schedule of events, including games and TASO/chapter events.

Please understand this is a fluid and dynamic situation.  While UIL and TAPPS are committed to playing out this season, ongoing events WILL generate further changes as UIL and all schools evaluate their options for the 2020 school year/season.  And these changes may occur daily.  

We will be sure to post updates as soon as we hear about them.  This link will provide you with the latest 2020 Calendar of Events for UIL, including the breakdown in schedules between 5A/5A and 4A and below:

IMPORTANT:  The 2020 TASO Rules Test is no longer available!   You can find your results when you log into your TASO portal. 

**You must have scored a 70 or better to work any level of game, and an 80 or better to work playoff games!   The test and the rules clinic must be completed by the time varsity scrimmages and games are assigned.

Please contact your Division Rep if you are in need of/seeking assistance with training for the season.  We will be more than glad to provide additional training and education opportunities.

Other important updates and events:

1.  Please reference the emails sent out via Arbiter for ongoing training events.  If you have any questions, please contact your Division Representative.

The Young Guns Program is offering ongoing Zoom training which is beneficial for officials of all levels.  Please check your email for these dates/times.  Go to the Education tab (link below) for further training information, including the Young Guns program, led by Eric Smith.

*** The Official's section will have the actual links to chapter Zoom meetings. ***

 *** If you are not receiving emails via Arbiter regarding these dates and links, please contact your Division Rep to ensure you receive Arbiter blast emails. ***

2.  ** The Annual TASO State Football Meeting was conducted via webinar on 25 July.**  

** If you attended the entirety of this webinar, you received 9 education points.  Additionally, per SA Chapter By-Laws, you will receive one meeting credit toward the total requirement of seven for this season (there will be nine meetings scheduled...see the Chapter Event Schedule at the bottom of the page).  Additionally, if you attended all four Chapter Zoom meetings in August, you received credit for another meeting.

There are several TASO breakout training webinars scheduled for the coming weeks.  Please note you will NOT receive additional points for attending these additional webinars...they are provided to help strengthen your rules and mechanics knowledge.


3.  ALL On-Field and Regional Rules Clinics are cancelled across the state...they will now be conducted on-line.   Go to your TASO portal to find the on-line must watch ALL the videos in their entirety to get credit.  

4.  IMPORTANT:  While many games have been published in Arbiter, please note that they WILL change and the entire published Arbiter schedule for 2020 will be updated.  So do not be surprised when you start receiving cancellation notices or game removal notices as we update Arbiter based on latest inputs from schools.  Please go in and update any blocks you may have ASAP, and accept your games.

Do NOT contact the secretary (David Balli) with any schedule questions...he will be busy ensuring Arbiter is updated with ongoing as the schedule changes.  


5.  If anyone has concerns about being on the field, whether from a personal or professional perspective, please notify your crew chief and/or Division Representative.  We understand the concerns and risks associated with the virus and the decision of individuals to officiate football, and respect the decision of anyone to recuse themselves from officiating. Officiating is an at-risk activity, and while UIL, TASO and chapters across the state will continue to advocate for and provide information, the ultimate decision to officiate and your individual safety are up to you.  This could include wearing masks, gloves, travel arrangements, using your own water source, towels and/or using an electronic whistle...these are but just a few examples, but bottom-line is your safety is in your hands.


Please reference the 2020 Chapter Event Schedule posted below for further information.
