The CFOA has a number of awards that recognize our members accomplishments both on and off the field.
Moe Ridgeway Award
The Moe Ridgeway award recognizes exemplary service to the CFOA over a significant period of time. Contributions through activities such as executive participation, training and mentoring, rating, and overall leadership. The executive looks beyond on-field service and accomplishments when choosing recipients for this award. It is worth noting that this award is awarded when merited – not necessarily annually.
Lorne Larson Junior Official Award
The Lorne Larson award is given annually to an official who has not achieved an on-field assignment at the CJFL or CIS level. It is typically awarded to a junior official whom has shown significant improvement in on-field performance and has performed at a higher level than his or her peers.
Roger Tierney Leadership Award
The Roger Tierney award is awarded to an official who has demonstrated on-field leadership, especially at the pee wee, bantam, and midget levels. This award is voted upon and presented annually by the Calgary minor football coaches.
Lifetime Honorary Members
Lifetime Honorary Members are officials who have contributed significantly to the Calgary Football Officials Association, and whose contributions go beyond the football filed.
Bill Lorfing Training Award
Awarded to members who have gone above and beyond in helping train and mentor the next generation of officials.
Grant Schmick ‘Bailout’ Award
Awarded to a member who is always available to pick up last minute assignments. Chosen and recognized by our Assignor.
Retired Jersey Numbers
When a member retires and has made extraordinary contributions to the association over many years, retirement of that official’s jersey number is considered.
