The Southern Nevada Officials Association (SNOA) has been serving the Clark County School District (CCSD) and all NIAA affiliated schools since 1951. 

Purpose: The purpose of the Association shall be to provide quality football officiating, to maintain and strive to improve football officiating through an education and training program; to promote fair play and sportsmanship among people involved in football contests; and, to encourage good fellowship among members of the Association and others interested in football.

SNOA provides field officials, chain crews, and clock operators for all high school football games in the Southern Nevada area. SNOA also provides field officials for CCSD Girl's Flag Football, youth football, middle school football and recreational flag football programs. Traditionally, we have also provided officials for a Thanksgiving tournament that brings teams from all over the country to compete during that weekend.

Eligibility: Membership shall be available to any person interested in football officiating provided he/she fulfills the requirements of membership and has complied with the ethical standards of the Association. On-field football officials must be 18 years or older and out of high school. They are required to attend meetings and scrimmages for training and evaluation. They also must pass a background check conducted through the Nevada Interscholastic Activities Association (NIAA) and pass a test prepared by the National Federation.

Football Board: SNOA Football is run by a 3 - member Board, elected by the certified football membership, elections are held prior to each season with those elected to 3-year term. The board then elects a Chairman.
