About Us

Inner Piedmont Football Officials was formed in February of 2013 as a result of the statewide realignment of schools and assigning regions.  The association assigns officials for 47 North Carolina high schools in 15 counties, mostly located west of I-77 to the base of the Appalachian Mountains, and from the state lines of  Virginia/Tennessee to South Carolina.   The IPFO assigns games for six conferences:  Southern Piedmont, Mountain Valley, South Mountain Athletic, Southern District 7 Athletic, Northwestern and North Piedmont.

Our officials are assigned to varsity and junior varsity contests.  All officials must be registered with the North Carolina High School Athletic Association, attend local-regional-State conducted clinics, and successfully pass the NFHS exam.  (80% for playoffs; 75% for eligibility requirement)  Officials working varsity football must have at least two years of scholastic football experience at a lower level.  Local rules clinics begin in June.  Clinics are conducted in Boone, Gastonia, Hickory, Morganton, Rutherfordton, and Statesville.
