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 NFHS 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.
