Officials/Coaches Workshop

On TBD, an Officials/Coaches Workshop will be held in TBD.


The TIFI Rules and the NCAA Rules can be found through the "Rules and Regulations" link.





Per TIFI rule 1.04A, clubs are required to have 2 FCA certified coaches at every practice, club function, and game.  The rule requires that the AD and the Head Coaches of each level (Freshmen, Sophomore, Junior, and Senior) take the certification.  However, it is open to all coaches.   




Hey Ref!

Do you have a question you would like to ask a Ref?  Email our Head Official and Assistant Official your questions for a quick response.  They can answer any questions regarding NCAA rules or what happens on the TIFI fields.  Remember that officials are there to officiate the game.  They only enforce TIFI rules that involve the game of football itself.  Send your questions and comments to:


    Head Official:            Tony Hardeman    mrtref@sbcglobal.net

    Asst. Head Official:    Don Purdy
