Who we are

The Stars and Stripes Academy was created in 2012 by Karl Richins (former Big 12 referee and published author) and Ryan Dickson (NFL Side Judge #25) as a way to prepare officials for the experience of working “big time” football. The Academy is located in Salt Lake City, Utah, usually the second weekend in May.

What we do

The Stars and Stripes Academy is intense training for officials focused specifically on “big time” college football. Small college and FCS level officials will prepare themselves to take the next step to D-1 football. High school officials will get a taste of the college experience and improve at their current level while preparing to advance in officiating.

Why us?
