South Carolina Football Officials Association
Welcome to the SCFOA's WEB page. This page will provide an outline of what SCFOA is and what it does to serve the Football Officials of South Carolina and the schools. Also presented is a listing of SCFOA Officers and Directors.
Founded in 1944, in order to provide a means of training and developing football officials and maintaining a booking office for varsity football officials, the South Carolina Football Officials Association has grown from the original 12 officials serving 4 high schools, to its present size of 580 officials serving 197 schools. A basic rating system was developed in 1958 to assess each official. The rating system was incorporated into SCFOA's Constitution and By-laws in 1967 and is used today in assigning officials to varsity football games. The rating system awards points to officials as follows: a Rules and Mechanics exam - 40%, SCFOA Credit (years of experience) - 15%, Fellow Officials Ratings - 25%, District Classroom meetings and preseason scrimmages - 15% and Cooperation - 5%. Coaches do not rate officials in this rating system.
