The River Parish Football Officials Association is looking for new refs to officiate high school football action throughout the parish this upcoming season.

Donaldsonville, Ascension Catholic and East Ascension are all schools currently covered by the RPFOA with St. Amant and Dutchtown on the agenda for the near future.

The RPFOA is a great avenue for any aspiring official to take the next step in their officiating careers. It's great experience to break into the college ranks, as college supervisors want you to know the mechanics.

Meetings for those interested will continue every Tuesday night until May 14.

Anyone who has an interest in officiating, is at least 18 years of age and is a high school graduate, or has acquired a GED, is eligible to join the RPFOA.

For information on how to join, you can visit the RPFOA website at, or you can call (800) 908-1524.
