Salem Football Officials Association (SFOA)
The SFOA is the second largest football officiating association in Oregon with approximately 125 members, serving 33 high schools, 30 middle school, and numerous Boys Club, Pop Warner and other youth programs in the Willamette Valley. Our area includes Colton and Mill City on the east, Scio and Monmouth-Independence on the south, Willamina and Sheridan on the west, Yamhill-Carlton and Newberg on the north, and all the other schools in between.
All Oregon high school football officials and associations are certified and regulated by the state governing body known as the Oregon School Activities Association (OSAA). Our local association is one of fifteen located within the State. The SFOA is also a member of the Oregon Athletic Official’s Association (OAOA).
An elected board of the membership governs the activities and business of the SFOA. All game assignments are made at the sole discretion of the Commissioner, also an elected position.
The association utilizes ArbiterSports.com for game scheduling and assignment notification. This website also serves as the Central Hub for the OSAA and the National Federation of State High School Associations.
