Battlefields to Ballfields - Hey Ref!

Small Business

My dad served in the Navy, my future father-in-law retired from the Army, my future step-son is actively serving in the Air Force, and as an educator I’m a Marine Ambassador. Service to others...and the Game, which is why I wanted to present this opportunity.

If you have served in our Military then you have the qualities to become a Referee!
Uniform, Code, Teamwork, Pride, Fit, Skilled, Discipline, Rules, etc. All these things also apply to Refereeing, no matter what the sport. Ready for an adventure? Join a new team!

Battlefields to Ballfields is headed by the NFL’s current Rules Expert Mike Pereira.

The Texas Association of Sports Officials which represents High School Refs is also backing the Vets of the Stars & Stripes in Texas. Both organizations will help fund you with Uniforms, Clinics, and Registration process. Time is not running out, but lace up now.
