Also, for any Zoom meeting, an email blast is sent to all members via Arbiter with the Zoom links.  If you do not receive this email, please contact your Div Rep ASAP so they can help rectify the problem (we are finding issues with some email addresses in Arbiter).

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Due to various federal, state and local orders/guidance, including from UIL, TAPPS and TASO, regarding the coronavirus pandemic, there could be many changes to the 2021 schedule of events, including games and TASO/chapter events.

We will be sure to post updates as soon as we hear about them.  

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.  As we move into the 2022 season, 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.

Other important updates will be sent out via Arbiter and posted on this website.

  • For UIL updates, please go to:  

      

  • For TAPPS updates, please go to:  

  • For TASO updates, please go to:  

We encourage everyone to follow applicable health practices/guidelines, and we hope everyone remains safe and healthy during these challenging times.

If you have questions, please contact your Division Rep.
