Essential Information for 2019
On-Field Registration Fee: $700.00. This includes camp activities and scrimmages and meals/social activities at the Camp hotel. You are responsible for your own travel arrangements and hotel room rental. Also, please see the note below about your transportation responsibilities.
Replay Official Registration Fee: $500.00. Seasoned NCAA and NFL replay officials, including the former National Coordinator of Replay Officials, will lead you through the equipment, rules and protocol for serving as a Replay Official and Communicator. These training sessions will help prepare you to work as the essential 9th and 10th member of an officiating crew.
Transportation: We DO NOT provide you with transportation to El Paso or at the Camp. Please make your own air or other travel arrangements. If you fly into El Paso International Airport, the Radisson Hotel-El Paso Airport (our Camp headquarters) runs a complimentary shuttle service to and from the Airport. For your travel to the scrimmage sites and the Sun Bowl at UTEP, you will need to arrange your own transportation. This has not proved to be a problem in past years, so please make friends at the Camp with someone who can share a ride with you, or rent wheels so you can share with others. DO NOT travel into Mexico for any reason.
Camp Headquarters: We recommend that you book a room at the Radisson Hotel-El Paso Airport. Ask for the football officials camp rate when making your reservation. The Radisson, as our Camp headquarters, will host your check-in and our meeting sessions and group meals. Departures to scrimmage sites will leave from the hotel. http://www.radisson.com/el-paso-hotel-tx-79925/el_paso.
Uniform: For Day One, wear your full game uniform, with black pants. If you only plan to work referee, bring your white hat, but it may also be a good idea to bring your black hat as well. Don't worry about the position letters on the shirts, bring what you have. Bean bag colors are optional.
For Day Two, wear your summer uniform, with black shorts and short or crew style white or black socks. Please consider bringing a small bag or backpack so that you can carry an extra shirt, toiletry items and/or comfortable shoes...you may want to switch into classroom and lunchtime clothes when you are not working on-field with your Saturday scrimmages.
Shirt Numbers: We will provide you with a numbered placard and safety pins to attach to your shirt. This number will help our staff clinicians identify you during scrimmages and in video review.
Crew and Position Assignments: You will be assigned to an 8-person crew (you will work mechanics using the Center Judge position). We use our best efforts to have you work at your first choice of desired position, but please be prepared to work a secondary position.
Mechanics: You will work 8-man mechanics as if your scrimmages are being played under NCAA rules. Please be prepared to use the mechanics as outlined in the latest version of the CCA Football Officiating Manual when you work onfield in El Paso.
Off-Field Dress: El Paso's climate can be warm, so be prepared to wear shorts and football-casual dress for our meetings and gatherings at the hotel and at Sun Bowl stadium.
Fun Run: To get you warmed up for Day 2, please join us for our annual 2+ mile "Running of the Zebras" on Saturday morning. Bring your running gear and be sure to sign up for the run at check-in. We'll have all the details for you then.
Limited Refund Policy: Please understand that our Camp sells out quickly and once a spot is taken, it is difficult to fill it as we get closer to the Camp. We understand that things happen that prevent a registrant from attending, so we might be able to offer a partial refund up to 60 days prior to the camp. But, after that deadline, we will not offer any refunds, but you can transfer your spot to another qualified official. (PLEASE SEE "NOTE" BELOW)
