Chapter and State Dues for Current and New Members, and Assignors Fees
In an effort to make the payment process easier for our membership, the board has voted to require all payments for chapter dues be paid online via the chapter website. As a convenience, the points sheet has been added as well. On this page you will find the 2018 Points Sheet submission page, 2021 Houston Chapter Fees Schedule, a payment portal for all Chapter Dues, and Direct PayPal links and mailing addresses for the assignors and the Executive Secretary.

State Dues can be Paid by clicking the TASO Logo
It’s your first day of training to become a new Football Official. You’re going to be hit with a lot of information in a very short period of time. Thrown into all of this information, you will be told about Divisions, Points, Fees, and numerous other items that will only leave you with more questions. With this one page, hopefully most of your questions pertaining to those items will be answered.
Points In short, points are what you will need to advance in division rankings. You, as a new official are currently ranked as a division 5 official. This mean that you have no points. You will have to work hard and continue to learn as much as you can right from the get go.
The following are the point requirements to move up in Division.
Div 1 – 660
Div 2 – 360
Div 3 – 180
Div 4 – 060
Div 5 – 000
So now you have an understanding of how many points are required to get to the next level. But how do you get those points? For starters, there are three different categories for points; educational, game, and state meeting attendance. The following is a break down of those points.
Regional Clinics = 3 Points Each On Field Clinics = 5 Points Each District Meeting = 2 Points Each
Test Score: <70 = 0 Points 70-78 = 4 Points 80-88 = 6 Points 90-100 = 8 Points
(There is NO maximum for Educational Points)
Scrimmages = 1 Point Each Chains/Clock = 1/2 Point Each Sub Varsity Games = 1/2 Point Each
Varsity/College Games = 2 Points Each
State Meeting Attendance
State Meeting Attendance = 6 Points Each 1 Hour Breakout Session = 1 Point
Varsity Grading Scale
HUDL = 60 pts
Film Grading average
Spring Scrimmages = 3.5 pts
Each Crew Member worth 0.5pt
Fall Scrimmages = 7 pts
Each Crew Member worth 0.5pt (2 dates minimum)
ZBW Foul Report = 3pts
Credit for those submitted before noon the following day
ZBW Sportsmanship Card = 1.5pts
Submitted after every game
SV Participation = 28pts
Each crew member is worth 1pt
Crew member has to cover 5 SV dates to receive credit
These are the ways in which you will earn points that will move you up in Divisions. As you can see it is going to take a lot of hard work and dedication to get to the top. But with the right goals and mindset, you will get there in what will seem like no time at all. Your Points sheet is turned into the Chapters Executive Secretary at the end of the season. The number of points that you gets depends solely on you and your effort. As always, the Houston Chapter is working hard to stay ahead of the technological curve. With that being said, all points submissions must be done online. You are only allowed one submission, so make sure to check your math and points. Once you have completed your first season, points for that year can be submitted online via the points sheet submission page HERE.

Equality and Inclusion Committee
The Chapter has formed an Equality and Inclusion Committee in an effort to enhance attempts to have all of its members feel a sense of belonging in the Chapter. The Committee members strongly believe that everyone should have an opportunity for advancement and growth in the Chapter.
The Committee is in the process of creating a video of members’ experiences in the Chapter, both positive and negative, to provide insight into how the interactions with new members and members of minority groups (whether based on race, sex or sexual orientation) can help or hinder the Chapter’s base and its growth. If you are interested in participating in the video, please contact Carleton Cole at email@example.com or (281) 460-3849 by March 15, 2022.
Chapter members can contact the Committee with concerns and compliments regarding inclusion/equality issues. The members of the Committee are Carleton Cole (Chairperson), Rebecca Gallegos, Yvonda Lewis, Melanie Moorshead, Frank Sanchez, Terrie Sechrist, and Frank Young III.
