The TASO/Austin Football Chapter is actively seeking new applicants for membership to begin training for football officiating assignments in 2001.
There are no specific requirements for becoming a member of TASO, other than an appreciation of the game of football, a desire to learn the officiating profession and an interest in helping youth of all ages.
New members are encouraged to attend Saturday and weekend clinics that are held in June and July, and are also required to attend weekly training classes beginning in August. Members who participate in the training classes will be eligible to officiate youth league and sub-varsity high school games in 2001. As new members gain experience, they will be assigned to high school varsity games at various levels.
