Everything you need to know to master the high school football rules

This course is geared toward newer and less-experienced officials, but officials of all levels of expertise can gain from its content.

We explain the rules in simple, easy-to-understand language and provide examples to help clarify the sometimes-confusing rule book.

By using video and written lectures, quizzes, case play examples, and film study, you will learn all you need to know to get it right on Friday night. (And Thursday night, and Wednesday night, and whatever other day - or days - you work football.)

The High School Football Rules Online Course covers every single rule of the rule book, and its in-depth, yet simple, material is easy to understand.

So let's kick things off and begin to help you understand the intricate rules of high school football.

I am a 16-year veteran of high school football officiating, having worked hundreds of regular-season games, as well as state championships and all-star games.

I have developed a passion for teaching our newer officials about the great game of high school football, both the rules and the mechanics.

This course is designed for the less-experienced official, but all officials, with all levels of experience, can learn from this material.

See you on the field!
