Since our inception in 1946, Northwest Georgia Football Officials Association has a commitment to excellence in football officiating  that is unequaled. Our membership is a diverse, professional and dedicated group that is committed to providing the highest level of officiating to all the Georgia High School Association member schools.

We cover the greater NW region of Georgia from Rossville to Adairsville, Rome to Blue Ridge and all parts between. If you're wanting more information about what the first season as a NWGFOA official is like, visit What to Expect. We are not currently taking applications for the 2016 season. GHSA, for a second consecutive season selected one of our crews to work a state championship. There is a strong sense of accomplishment amongst the members of NWGFOA but we are not satisfied. We are committed to improving upon an already strong team of officials.
