If you would like to become a high school football official, the Abilene Chapter wants you as a member.
You must be at least 16 years old (18 years old to work varsity games), in relatively good physical condition, and enjoy the game of football. You must be willing to take the time to learn the rules of the game and be interested in helping the young athletes of Texas participate in the game.
Applicants may contact any of the Chapter Officers using the information on the Directors page and can complete a TASO Membership Application at:
You will be required to attend weekly training sessions held on Tuesday evenings at 5:45pm beginning in July. Upon completion of training you will be eligible to officiate area high school varsity (if you are at least 18 years old) and sub-varsity football games.
You will be required to supply your own uniform. We can help you locate vendors who sell TASO uniforms and equipment.
