EBOA Under Review 2023-0830 V1.png

Performance Evaluations play an integral role in the learning and advancement process of EBOA member officials. Officials at all levels of our organization are regularly being evaluated, as part of the overall educational and development process. Our College and University officials have appointed evaluators at all games providing post-game feedback and analysis.

The Education Team, lead by Director of Education and Development, work throughout the season to coordinate the process and evaluate all referees. Members are encourage to welcome the evaluation process, and to incorporate self-evaluation into their games.
