Sioux Empire Football Officials Clinic


Welcome to our website. 2014 marks our 12th annual clinic. We hope that this website will help you learn about what our clinic has to offer. Whether you are brand new to officiating or a veteran looking to improve our goal is to offer the best two day learning experience possible. The clinic will consist of small group breakout sessions, video review, and live 11 on 11 full contact scrimmages.

Our 2014 dates are June 22nd and 23rd. The clinic will be held at Augustana College in Sioux Falls, SD. Our live scrimmages will be at the new 7,000 seat Kirkeby Over Stadium. Check out this link for more information on this state of the art facility.

The success of this clinic is directly related to the support and dedication of our NFL and NCAA Division I Clinicians. Over the last eight years, we have been fortunate to have the following clinicians: Mike Spanier, NFL #90, Line Judge, Joe Larrew, NFL #73, Side Judge, Carl Madsen, NFL #92, Umpire and Bill Carollo, NFL #63, retired, Super Bowl Referee. From the Division I ranks, we have had Bill LeMonnier, Big 10, Referee and John “Butch” Mascarello, Big 12, Umpire.

We are also pleased with the continued support and involvement of Bob Lowery and Buck Timmins of the South Dakota High School Activities Association, Dave Carlsrud of the North Dakota High School Activities Association, Colin Kapitan, Eastern South Dakota Conference, Supervisor of Officials and Rich Hanson, Greater Dakota Conference, Assigner.

We invite you to attend the clinic this year. It promises to be another great one. If you have any questions or comments, please email us at or call Orrin Anderson, Clinic Director at 605-332-5957 or 605-310-3507.
