With support from UNM; the NMOA, NFHS, and NFL Grassroots program have partnered together to help with the shortage of high school football officials in New Mexico.
With this in mind, Behind The Flag has organized the 2nd Annual 2023 Spring Football Officials Forum on March 31st and April 1st at UNM University Stadium. The forum is intended to educate, recruit, and retain NMOA high school officials, provide classroom, on-field training, and networking opportunities for those interested in advancing their officiating careers.
The forum will be instructed by current NFL, DI, and DII Football officials actively officiating in the NFL, BIG12, Mountain West, Conference USA, Rocky Mountain (RMAC) and LoneStar Conferences.
