The 2019 Gold List nominations have been submitted to CFOA today. The Gold List determines which officials will be eligible to work semi-final or final games at the end of the season. However, the Area Directors have decided NOT to publish the list of nominees until the end of the season. This is different from what we have traditionally done int he past. Considerable feedback has been given that it’s a significant “de-motivator” for officials if they did not receive a nomination at the beginning of the season. The CFOA / CHSAA observation schedule will begin as planned in week two, but officials will not know their post-season status until the regular season has concluded or is close to concluding. Other than submitting nominations, DFOA has no input to the observation process or final selections.
Being selected for the Gold List is quite an honor and we will celebrate those officials that were nominated at the end of the 2019 season.
