Behind The Flag presents the 2nd 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.
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.
Bob Arnone with Get It Right Enterprises will be present for Virtual Simulation training session to improve for 5 person mechanics and NFHS rules knowledge. The Virtual Reality product is used to put the official on a virtual field where an instructor can see what that official is looking at as well as their positioning.
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.
Plus, the NMOA and regional assignors will receive a list of New Mexico Football officials who attend this camp as part of the officials 2021 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.
