Mission Statement

Established in 1919, the Association of New England Football Officials (ANEFO) exists for the following purposes:

  • To educate and train officials in the sport of high school football in accordance with the rules set forth by the NCAA and the MIAA.
  • To enhance the knowledge and advance the skills of member officials as a means to promoting excellence in football officiating.
  • To gain a better understanding and interpretation of rules and on-field mechanics through weekly in-season meetings and clinics.

To fulfill its mission, ANEFO will coordinate and provide activities within the organization designed to encourage extensive communication and active participation among the membership as we strive to improve our officiating skills.

President’s Message

It is truly humbling to serve as President of the Association of New England Football Officials for 2019, its 100th year of existence! The longevity, strength, and size of our organization is a testament to the dedication and hard work of all the leaders who have served before me. I look forward to continuing the work they have done in making our organization the best in New England. We face one of the most exciting and one of the most challenging years in our history as we celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the Association and move to a new ruleset for MIAA games. The Executive
Board is working hard to provide the best resources to make our transition to NFHS rules as seamless as possible. While I know there will be challenges, I’m confident that we will all work together toward our goal of providing top level officiating as the Association always has. Attendance at weekly meetings will be important this year for all of us, new and tenured. We will have to turn back the pages of really digging into the rules each week while continuing to incorporate video and mechanics discussions. We’re relying on the veterans to help guide our new officials as they always
have. I look forward to seeing all of you soon, celebrating ANEFO at our 100th Celebration and throughout the year, and continuing the fine tradition of the Association.
Brian Doherty
ANEFO President 2019
