Join us as we prepare for the 2022 season!

"There is no season like the off-season!"

The 2022 season is right around the corner and if you aren't already preparing, you are behind the curve...the foundation you build now is the cornerstone for success this fall!

All 2021 end-of-season point forms have been submitted to TASO and your total points updated (visible in both your TASO portal and in Arbiter).  

To this point, you should ensure you have submitted a Conflict of Interest certification, and paid both your TASO and local dues.
NOTE:  The early registration date of 1 March for paying both TASO and local dues has passed and they have increased as per the late registration amounts (see below for links to both). 
And please note that
as of 2 March, late local dues cannot be refunded.


The following are important milestones as we move into our next phase:

1.  2022 Varsity Game Scheduling
Now that we've received all varsity schedules and they've been entered into Arbiter, game assignments for the first 6 weeks have been published in Arbiter.  Please check Arbiter frequently and accept your games as soon as possible.  Thank you.


2.  TASO Annual State Meeting - COMPLETE
The TASO Football Annual State Meeting was held 23 July.  If you attended all four breakout sessions AND the last general session, you should receive 10 education points.  Check with your Division Rep to ensure your points are accurate.


3.  Rules Clinics

- The San Antonio Football Chapter Regional Rules Clinic is complete!
We would like to thank everyone who attended the Alamo City Regional Rules Clinic, held 11 June.
Please go to either the Officials tab, or click on the button below to be taken to the Clinics tab under Education and Training 


- On-Field Clinic
Due to scheduling conflicts, the San Antonio Chapter will NOT host an on-field clinic.


- On-Line Clinic   
For those who are unable to attend a Regional Rules Clinic or were unable to attend the State Meeting, you will need to fulfill your clinic requirement by taking the TASO On-line Clinic, which should be posted by 8 August.  Check your TASO portal for further updates and availability.


4.  Fall Scrimmages
Our Scrimmage Coordinator, Rudy Balli, is currently trying to fill all Fall scrimmages, which are loaded in Arbiter.  Remember you need to work two Fall scrimmages to be in good standing.  Please contact Rudy regarding availability.  


5.  Annual Rules Test:  *** The test is now available (as of 10 June!) ***
Please log in to your TASO portal to find the test.  

NOTE:  You must score an 80 or better to work varsity games, and per the latest change to TASO football operating procedures, all members must score a 90 or better to work playoff games!



6.  CFO membership
As a TASO member, don't forget that you receive an 80% discount toward a College Football Officiating (CFO) membership.   You do not have to be a CFO official to enjoy the benefits of this membership...TASO members will receive full access to this leading rules and training site featuring video reviews, quizzes, bulletin updates and a searchable rules book.
To register:
Simply visit cfo.arbitersports.com and click the registration tab in the ribbon across the top of the page.  Once there, click the second box labeled “International, Massachusetts, & TASO” and enter your information. 
The cost is only $40 for TASO members to receive full access to the site. And while you won’t receive the rules or mechanics books, you will receive access to a treasure chest of knowledge meant to make you the best official you can be.

Finally, we welcome anyone who is interested in officiating high school football.  All you need is a love/respect for the game, so don't hesitate any longer! 
Please see the "
Become an Official" section of this website for further registration information
