2023 GTOA Crew Submission

GTOA Crew Chiefs:

The 2023 Crew Submission Form is now open here:

Crew chiefs ONLY should submit this form.  You must have at least 4 members of your crew established before you can submit your crew for assignments.  The assignment committee typically meets towards the end of July, so I would suggest getting this form completed by mid-July.  You may submit any conflicts/scratches on this form, but SPECIFIC SCHOOL/GAME requests will not be delivered to the assignment committee.  Also, if you have any date conflicts, please put that in the comments form as well.  

If you are still looking for another official to complete your crew, that information would best be delivered to Ethan Rolen or Harold Alspaugh.  The information from this form is not sent to the assignment committee until late July.

OSSAA/OOA Officiating Shirts

Officiating Performance Standards - *** IMPORTANT ***

Click the link below to view the Officiating  Performance Standards.  With the return of the OSSAA Observation Program, OSSAA evaluators will be using these standards to evaluate individual and crew performance.  These standards are to be used consisently throughout the state by all football officials.  Failure to follow these standards may result in a negative performance evaluation.

GTOA Important Forms

Below, you will find important forms for use during the high school football season:

NOTE:  Print the crew card templates on heavy cardstock paper (dual side), and then cut as necessary.


This is VERY IMPORTANT!!  If you do not enter a report for each game, your crew does not get credit for working that game and it can affect their rating and classification!!
