2018 OAFO Spring Football Clinic 

The Ohio Association of Football Officials (OAFO) Spring Clinic will take place May 11-12, at the Holiday Inn in Strongsville, Ohio.

 Clinic Co-Chairmen Nick Gerogosian, Jeff Noggle, Monty Mlakar, Steve Furjanic, all members of the OAFO, have announced that the clinic will be open to 165 registrants for 2018. Furthermore, the event promisesto have trainers from:  NFL, Big Ten, Mid-American, and other Division I conferences.

 Also in attendance will be representatives from many Division I, II, and III conferences, such as the OAC, NCAC, G-MAC, GLIAC, among others. 

 The focus of the clinic will be an advanced, interactive training experience for ALL members of the OAFO, including those currently officiating DI, DII and DIII football.  The clinicians and trainers will be focusing on NCAA rules and mechanics, utilizing the same interactive video technology used by the Big Ten office.  Clinic participants will have the opportunity to not only view play situations, but to “make calls” and participate in the discussions. 

 Other sessions will include individual position mechanics, both self and crew evaluation training, and a detailed discussion of current NCAA mechanics and officiating principles.  Utilizing the interactive technology, participants will be asked to make replay decisions from both the field and the booth. 

 We will kick it off at Noon on Friday, May 11 with registration and opening remarks.  A detailed agenda will be posted very soon on the OAFO’s website.  The clinic will conclude on Saturday, May 12 at 2 PM.
