The association began in 1923 as the St. Paul Officials Association. In 2010 the association merged with the Capital City Officials Association under the name of 'St. Paul/Capital City Officials Association'.
Our mission is to educate, develop and assign qualified football and basketball officials for the benefit of high schools and youth organizations.
St. Paul/Capital City referees have had great success over the years. Many of our members have advanced to the NFL, NBA, Divisions I, II and III football and basketball. We currently have two members in the NFL and two in the NBA. In addition there have been many, many high school state tournament and championship assignments.
Congratulations to SPCC Officials for working the State Football Tournament. Visit our football page for more information.
