The Northern Virginia Football Officials Association, Inc. was established in 1947, to develop and supply officials to the rapidly growing Northern Virginia area. Within a few years our services spread to Winchester, Fredericksburg, Spotsylvania, Stafford, Prince William, Culpeper and Orange; as well as portions of West Virginia, Maryland and Washington, DC.
We even became involved in college football for a brief period of time. It was soon determined that our vision should be directed to the high schools and those programs that fed into them. Since that determination, the NVFOA has become one of the premier high school officiating groups in the Washington Metro area, as well as in the state of Virginia. To this day, besides the powerful Northern and Northwestern Region teams of Virginia, we continue to serve some of the most respected private schools in Metro area football, including the Interstate Athletic Conference. We are proud of our heritage.
