Looking for a few good men and women
You get paid, tax-free, and work in the fresh air, walking in the footsteps of some who’ve made it to the Grey Cup game.
The Lakeshore Football Officials Association, the largest such association in the country, is looking for new officials, male or female, 16 years of age or over.
First-year officials take a level 1 certification course and generally work on stick crews during the summer and officiate minor football and some high school football in the fall.
Members of the LFOA officiate high school football in Halton, Peel and Niagara, handle all the minor football in Mississauga, Halton and Niagara, and can graduate to higher leagues, such as the OFC, OUA and CFL.
Dave Foxcroft — a CFL veteran who in 2016 was the backup referee for the Grey Cup game and during the preseason became the first Canadian to officiate in an NFL game — is among many seasoned officials who got their start with the LFOA.
Anyone interested in joining the LFOA should contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
