Education/Training

A core belief of the San Antonio Football Chapter is that to improve officiating, you must improve officials. Toward that end, the San Antonio Football Chapter provides its members with a variety of educational and training resources, to include:  

Clinics, Position Training, Rules Tests, Videos and Documentation.

Education and continual training are the key to being successful on the field.

Our training programs continue to emphasize all aspects of development that are critical to successful officiating. Special emphasis is placed on consistency, physical conditioning, professionalism, high ethical standards and effective communication. Crews are encouraged to make training a year round program that includes off season review and preparation for the upcoming season.  

Any Texas Association of Sports Officials (TASO) Member may take part in any of the Clinics (listed under the Clinics link) that the San Antonio Football Chapter hosts.
