Purpose: Program set up to create training and observation program for future Crew Chiefs. You must be in the FLR pool to be assigned a varsity Referee assignment.
Crew FLR Vs. Non-Crew FLR: Future crew chiefs may be chosen from the Crew FLR or the Non-Crew FLR. The advantage of the Non-Crew FLR over the Crew FLR is that you are given more games hence, the better chance of getting observed by an FLR Observer. You cannot be considered a viable candidate for a crew chief until you have been observed in the FLR program.
Non-Crew FLR: Cannot be on a crew. Could receive up to 5 or more Varsity Referee assignments per year. Can work other positions during weeks you are not assigned to a Referee position.
Crew FLR: Can be on a crew. Could receive up to 3 Varsity Referee assignments. Can work other positions during weeks you are not assigned to a Referee position.
FLR Quantity: Quantity to be re-evaluated on an annual basis. Equation for evaluation is as follows: Max quantity LB games in one week minus number of full time crews plus 2 equals # of FLR's.
