The Southeastern Athletic Officials Association provides officials for school sports programs throughout Southeastern North Carolina. We are constantly seeking individuals who have high character and integrity, a love for the game and a willingness to work with others. It takes a special person to be able to control their emotions, perform professionally and maintain order, when all about them have lost their composure and chaos abounds.

Officiating requires hours of preparation, study and training. Officials are expected to be perfect every night. We are under appreciated by many who don't understand the commitment required to perform at such high level. However, it is still a very rewarding and fun avocation. Most importantly, we do it for the kids.

If you are interested in joining the SAOA and becoming an official, follow the instructions below. You will also find information about specific sports by clicking on the Sports links above. A Regional Supervisor Of Officials assigns officials to officiate games for each particular sport. Each sports sub-site has the Regional Supervisor's name and contact information listed within the section. If you have any questions about a particular sport, just contact the Regional Supervisor for that sport.

Here's what you need to do to get started.

The NCHSAA registration fees vary from sport to sport and there is a required $31.00 insurance fee required for all officials. You may pay these fees online with a credit card or you can mail the NCHSAA a check to the address given on their website. If the NCHSAA has not received your check within 14 days of registration, it is subject to cancellation.

Important: If you plan on registering for multiple sports now you must pay for all sports at the time you register. If you have unpaid fees the NCHSAA will make you ineligible to receive assignments until the remaining balance is paid. Be sure to check the NCHSAA website for registration deadlines for the sports you are interested in officiating.
