About Us


Welcome to the official page of the Gulf Coast Football Officials Association serving Sarasota and Bradenton. We are one of the top associations in the state of Florida. We send several crews to FHSAA State Playoffs each year. We have also officiated multiple State Championships.  We add schools every year and are always looking to add new officials. We referee games within Sarasota, Manatee, Charlotte, Desoto, and Hardee counties. 

We now officiate Girls Flag Football in the Spring.
