Returning/Transfer member on or after June 22: $150
Returning/Transfer member LATE Registration on or after July 12: $200

If you have trouble registering, we will have laptops available at our first few meetings this summer, as well as people there to help walk you through the registration process.

THE PASSING OF DEAN CROWLEY

Southern California football officiating lost a legend recently with the passing of Dean Crowley. He is a former commissioner of the CIF Southern Section and a huge advocate of officials. We are keeping his family in our thoughts. You can read more about Dean in the LA Times: https://www.latimes.com/sports/highschool/varsity-times/la-sp-vti-dean-crowley-20190525-story.html

Welcome to the NEW Home of the CFOA-LA Unit!

Please bear with us as we transition sites over the next few weeks. Some functions may not be available. If you have any questions, please email unit secretary Cyd Zeigler at cydzeiglerjr@gmail.com

Assignor Fees Due

If you still owe assignor fees from a previous season you will not be allowed to register. Please do make sure you settle your account.

There are THREE WAYS to pay:

1) PAY IN PERSON 
You can pay your fees by visiting Don Childs. Please reach out to him at dchilds30@yahoo.com to make arrangements. You can use cash, check or credit card.

2) SEND A CHECK
You can send a check made out to CFOA-LA UNIT to the following address:

CFOA-LA Unit
PO Box 35284
Los Angeles, CA 90035

3) PAY VIA PAYPAL WITH YOUR BANK ACCOUNT

Use your bank account to pay via PayPal. Send the payment on PayPal to dchilds30@yahoo.com with the note "ASSIGNOR FEE." Please select "Friends and Family" when choosing the PayPal method of payment to avoid added fees.

If you have any questions about what you might owe, you can reach out to Don Childs at dchilds30@yahoo.com.

The assignor fee is $6/game for members, $8/game for non-members. Again, on Nov. 1 a penalty fee will be assessed.

If you need additional help with logging in please contact Secretary Cyd Zeigler at cydzeiglerjr@gmail.com.

INSPECTING FIELDS BEFORE EACH GAME

With various media reports of needles being found on ballfields, and with the increase of homelessness in Los Angeles, inspecting fields before each game will be a point of emphasis this season. Each official should be on the field at least 30 minutes before each game for a careful inspection of the field.

If you find a needle, do not touch it. Contact a school administrator immediately, and be sure to include this in your game report.

Camp Oxy

If you're looking to become a better official and learn from some of the best in Southern California, Camp Oxy has three dates this summer: July 13, and Aug. 10 & 24. Head over to their website to see where they are and how you can join. https://campoxy.com
