The AHSAA conducts one statewide training camp annually for football officials. Decatur is hosting the camp for the second time.
The training also provides an opportunity for high school football teams to participate in intra-squad practice scrimmages. Along with the officials, 16 teams from the Northwest District will take part in the camp that provides intense on-field training for officials.
Educational sessions will be conducted at Turner-Surles Community Resource Center located at 702 Sycamore Street NW in Decatur on Friday and Saturday with intra-squad practice scrimmages held both nights at local high school football stadiums.
For more information on the camp, contact Leonard Morris, special events and sports marketing director for the Decatur/Morgan County CVB, at 256.350.2028.
