Behind The Flag presents the 3rd Annual NFHS New Mexico High School Football Officials Camp (5 person mechanics). The camp will be conducted by and taught by current Division I and Division II Football Officials actively officiating in the Mountain West Conference, Conference USA, Rocky Mountain (RMAC) Conference, and LoneStar Conference. Officiating is a business, our customer is the high school student athlete and their coaches.
The camp will cover crew video break down, NMOA officiating philosophy, NFHS crew rules quiz, mechanics, and on-field games evaluations. Each crew will be assigned a college official as a crew mentor.
The camp is a NMOA sanctioned camp for NMOA Football Officials and meets the requirements for post-season eligibility as governed by the NMOA By-Laws. Additionally, Several NMOA Regional Assignors will be present during the camp.
The NMOA will receive a list of New Mexico Football officials who attend this camp as part of the officials 2022 training. The camp participants will receive a NMOA evaluation for their personal improvement plan. Each camp participant will receive a camp gift (Football Swag), and are expected to ask questions, network with other officials, and have fun.
With the support and mentorship of our clinicians, several New Mexico High School Football Officials have been promoted into the RMAC, LoneStar, and EAIFO Conferences to officiate at the NAIA, Junior College, Division III, and Division II levels.
