Thank you to all our GNOA Football Officials for a great season. The Arbiter is empty and we now prepare for next year. It starts today. In order to continue the tradition we have set forth WE ALL NEED TO IMPROVE .

 

1 WE NEED TO LOSE WEIGHT .

Shannon made a comment last week about how fat many of us have got and hes right.Two years ago our Football Umpires lost 200 pounds. Last year some veterans had a weight loss challenge and did well. Look at yourself be honest its time most of us lost more than a few pounds. NOW IS THAT TIME OVER THE SUMMER. You might be a terrific official but if you're fat the perception is not good from the time you arrive at the site. Let's make a commitment to lose weight this off season. As a group we are too fat LET'S GET SOME WEIGHT OFF NOW.  

 

2 JLB BADGE

Look at your JLB badge if it expires in 2019 you need to order one NOW not in the fall. If you need a JLB badge you need to tell Doug NOW. If you've told Doug you need to go get fingerprinted NOW follow the steps on the GNOA Central Hub those that have been fingerprinted we have their badges already.. Doug's email is:

3 YOUR GEAR

Look at your equipment if you need a new hat email Troy many of your hats look way too old in fact I'd encourage every official to order a new one. You should be ordering a new GNOA logo hat every year. They're about $20 .If you want to do a varsity game you will need a GNOA hat. If you do not have a GNOA polo shirt order one from Troy in fact if you plan on doing a varsity game you should have a GNOA shirt whether on field or clock. If you have not purchased one this is year six for GNOA better do so. The orders Troy takes now will be ready for season give him your size. Troy's email is :

4 STUDY THE RULES .

You will never be accomplished until you know the rules. I learned after my first year if I want to be proficient and respected by fellow officials and coaches I had better know the rules inside out.

The 2019 REDDINGS GUIDE is out and terrific for simplifying rules . Make sure you order the NFHS National Federation High Schools not NCAA version ..$17.95 the best money you will spend all year !
