Welcome to the PNFOA
The PNFOA (Pacific Northwest Football Officials Association) is a group dedicated to serving the greater Seattle Metro area with High School football officiating services.

PNFOA Awards Annual Sportsmanship
On Monday, January 26, 2015 at the Juanita HS Football Banquet, PNFOA awarded Nick Peterson their annual Sportsmanship Award.

The award is granted to the school with the expectation that the school and coaching staff will choose an individual football player who is planning on furthering his education after graduation. This educational institution can include: junior college, community college, vocational school or a four year college/university. The award is a $500 check toward expenses at that school.

Since 2003 PNFOA has given sportsmanship awards to football teams in our service area (King County, WA) that exhibit excellent sportsmanship on the field. PNFOA members fund this award by donating their own game fees.  This year PNFOA official Mike Carter presented the individual scholarship award to Nick Peterson while PNFOA official Paul McKillop presented the team award to Head Coach Shawn Tarantola.

Why Become a Football Official?
Get involved first hand in the game up close and personal. Become a positive role model to children and young adults.  Build relationships like no others and make lifelong friends.  These are but a few reasons to become a high school football official.

To meet the challenge of officiating. As an official, you have to deal with stress and pressure and make split-second decisions.

Are you qualified and able?  Officiating is a very demanding avocation.

  • Are you physically fit? You are constantly moving and work outside in the elements. It can be very hot, very cold, or raining.
  • Are you emotionally fit?
  • Do you take criticism well?
  • Can you stay calm under pressure?
  • Can you commit time to officiating? During the season, many times you will need to be off work before 5:00. You will also need to dedicate time to studying the rules both during the season and during the off-season to fully understand them.
