The Stars and Stripes Academy is intense training for officials focused specifically on "big time" college football. Small college and FCS level officials will prepare themselves to take the next step to D-1 football. High school officials will get a taste of the college experience and improve at their current level while preparing to take the next step. Do you have what it takes to be a "SASA survivor"?
Registration for SASA is open to anyone seeking to become a better football official at any level, regardless of experience. There are on-field and non-field positions available and you may apply for one, the other, or both.
Students are assigned to crews, work real semi-pro football games from start to finish and are trained by some of the most respected college football officials in the world. This intense experience begins months before the Academy and culminates with three days of "balls to the wall" training and field work in Salt Lake City, Utah.
