HSSOA (TASO Houston Chapter) will be hosting several fitness tests for referees who wish to qualify for Regional and State playoff games, and we are extending an invitation to your chapter to participate.  We will have a TASO representative present and an EMT on site.  All tests will start at 9:00 A.M. and be finished about 11:00 A.M.  The tests will be held on the track at the following venues:

December 30, 2023:   Arnold Middle School, 11111 Telge Rd, Cypress, TX 77009

January 13, 2024:  Dobie High School, 10220 Blackhawk Blvd, Houston, TX 77089

If you will be sending referees, please notify Gene Mitchell
(713‑494‑9982) or Pierre Boucha, VP‑Development (281‑450‑9339), and advise their names and which venue they are attending.

The test consists of two events:

Event 1 consists of 6 each: 40‑yard runs in nine seconds or less.  The participant is allowed to exceed 9 seconds once.

Event 2 consists of interval run/walks:  150‑yard run in 45 seconds, 50 yard walk in 45 seconds and so on until 10 laps have been completed.   If the time is exceeded on any interval, the runner fails.
