New Zealand Gridiron Officials
NZGO is part of the New Zealand American Football Federation and manages the development of officials in NZ.
Once a new official has registered they will be contacted by a member of NZGO and be briefed on the next steps.
If a new official or potential new official wants to talk to one of the NZGO members to understand what the requirements and commitments are then please use this contact form and a member will get in touch.
Being an American Football Official can provide many opportunities.
From starting at the entry level of officiating contact football or Flag football officials can enter into the Officials Development Program (see below) and develop their knowledge and skills.

NZAFF is committed to supporting Officials on this pathway and will actively support officials when those opportunities present themselves.
