Officials are an important part of NFL FLAG. To make sure each game operates smoothly and fairly, there are some key skills and attributes each NFL FLAG official should be:
In tip-top shape. A lot of running goes into officiating so it’ll help if you are physically fit
Cool, calm and collected. The ability to operate in high-pressure situations and maintain a level-headed attitude is essential.
Knowledgeable of the rules and referee signals—which we help teach.
Able to deal with players, parents and coaches all at once. Having these people skills helps manage the flow of each game.
If you know any officials who fit these criteria, please share their information with us!
