SICOA OFFICIALS;
Breeding Success By
Being Successful!

welcome

TO WEST CENTRAL FLORIDA’S PREMIER OFFICIATING ASSOCIATION!

The Southern Independent Conference Officials Association, Inc. (SICOA), is a non-profit organization established to assign its members as officials and promote the game of football at the recreation, middle school, high school, collegiate and minor league levels throughout the Tampa Bay area and state wide. Our roster of officials exceeds 140 with twenty one full time crews. We welcome annually brand new applicants as well as transfer officials who have either moved into the area or have joined us by referral. Although our members receive a fee for their services, our main function is the training of football officials in the implementation of the mechanics and rules of the game as set forth by the governing bodies, including the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) and the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA). SICOA is a proud sanctioned member of the Florida High School Athletic Association (FHSAA), headquartered in Gainesville, Florida and both the NCAA and NAIA.

 

SICOA Officials and Clock Operators Wanted

SICOA is continually seeking new members to join our organization. We seek individuals, male or female, who have reached the age of 16 and have a desire to be a part of the most exciting and popular scholastic game in America. This participation can be in the form of on-field officials or electric clock operators. Experience is NOT a requirement. We have a highly successful training program that covers every aspect of the game of football. If you have the time to commit, we have the resources to teach and develop you as a football official. Training information and application forms are available on this website . Go to "Be A New Member" link from the main menu of this site. To get immediate consideration, click on the "Join SICOA" flashing icon at the top of this page and complete the on-line questionaire

"A DEVILISH WAY TO WIN"

One day the devil called up St. Peter and   challenged him to a football game.

"Okay," St. Peter said, "But you know we have all the great players and coaches up here in Heaven."

"You'll lose anyway," the devil said.

"Don't be foolish," St. Peter replied. "We're sure to win. Why we have Jim Thorpe, Pop Warner, Vince Lombardi,  Lyle Alzado, Johnny Unitas, Walter Payton, and Knute Rockne.

"I know," the devil interrupted, "But we have all the referees!

July 23rd meeting at Hillsborough Baptist School.

2013 Registration Fee: $44.00

Applications for registration received after the

deadline will incur a $10.00 late fee.

1. They have not registered with SICOA
2. They have not registered with the FHSAA
3. They have outstanding fees or fines owed to the
FHSAA in any sport in which they officiate.

Tips To Give Your Body An
Edge During Football Season.

Click Here Healthy Heart

Temperatures during the summer and fall can exceed
100'. Click the icon above to review what you need to do
to prepare for the heat and humidity on Football Friday's
& Saturday's as an amateur football game official. If
you are more than 10lbs overweight, you need to drop
weight now by having a consistent training program.
Limit red meats. Substitute sweets for fresh fruit.
Eliminate soft drinks for purified water. Drinking water
should be reverse osmosis filtered. Ice tea
is a good alternative. Start a daily or nightly walking
program increasing distance every week. Most
importantly, consult your doctor. Get a physical and
routine blood work. Don't make excuses for avoiding a
visit to the doctor. One visit could save your life!
