We Want you!

to become an official for free!

You have served your country and now we would like to show our appreciation!  High School football needs officials!  As a military veteran, you can join DFOA for FREE and have your uniform costs paid for.  In the first year, a new official can spend $250 or more on training, books and uniform costs….it’s not a trivial amount.  The Denver Football Officials Association has teamed up with Mike Pereira and his Battlefields to Ballfields (B2B) organization to get more veterans on the football field this fall.  B2B will do the following for new officials that meet the military service requirements:

  • Pay for uniforms required to officiate
  • Reimburse for local association dues
  • Provide a mentor who will train and follow their progress

Details on the B2B Scholarship program can be found on their website here:

"In serving in the military, and in officiating, there’s the common bond of being a member of a team and creating order out of chaos. Battlefields to Ballfields will provide these veterans with an opportunity to hone their newfound officiating skills and participate in something that will give them a new sense of self-worth along with the ability to make some extra income."
