“Excellence is doing ordinary things extraordinarily well.” — John W. Gardner

Many officials, from all over the country, have recognized the TBFOC as a major contributor in their advancement. The TBFOC has been a “springboard” for many officials trying to make the transition from high school to college, as well as for many collegiate officials working their way up the chain. In addition to the list of impressive clinicians, the following Supervisor of Officials will be invited to attend: Gerald Austin (C-USA), Greg Burks (Mountain West), Bill Carollo (Collegiate Officiating Consortium), David Coleman (Pac-12), Dennis Hennigan (ACC), Bryan Platt (AAC), Jeff Cooney (Ivy / Patriot), Milt Halstead (ECFOA), Ryan Flynn (NE10) and more!


“Everyday is Game Day!!!”

To improve at any profession it takes “Commitment, Dedication, Dependability & Attitude’” these are the key variables Tom Beard worked tirelessly at instilling in officials at all levels. Tom also knew that you could not wait until August to pick up a rule book or decide to get in shape for the upcoming season, and he had no problem telling you that. You have to work hard at it 24/7/365 days a year. Officiating has become a year round profession, you will only get out of it what you are willing to put into it, and there is no better time than the present to prepare yourself as if ‘Every Day is Game Day!’ Additionally, no better time than the present to register to attend the Tom Beard Football Officials Clinic on 9-10 March 2020. The TBFOC Staff works hard year round to ensure Tom’s legacy continues; we know officiating is not JUST a part time job and our drive and focus to provide you with a top notch clinic began as soon as the last clinic has ended.
