The Anchorage Football Officials Association was originally known as Western Alaska Football Officials (WAFO) which started in the 1960’s. WAFO changed its name to Anchorage Football Officials Association (AFOA) in 1996 because of requirement to incorporate within the state of Alaska. As a result, AFOA has been providing football officials to Anchorage and the Mat-Su Valley High Schools for over 50 years. In addtion, AFOA has added Kodiak Island Borough School District and Kenai Peninsula Borough School District for officiating football.
AFOA has full and complete understanding of all aspects of providing qualified football officials for high school tackle and girls flag football games which include working with the supported schools in establishing schedules, training officials for all levels of administering football games, and providing officials for the games as needed. AFOA is the premiere local association capable of administering high school tackle and flag football games.
