About Our Association - NJHSTOA

The New Jersey High School Tennis Officials Association was organized in 2005 to provide tennis officials for the NJSIAA (New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association). The purpose of the organization is to promote the welfare of high school tennis by training officials who will uniformly interpret and administer the rules of scholastic tennis in New Jersey.

Tennis officials are currently mandatory for all high school state matches for girls tennis in the Fall and boys tennis in the Spring. Our assignors also receive requests for officials for occasional regular season matches and for local and county high school tournaments.

At present we have approximately one hundred officials in our organization and hold certification classes for new umpires twice a year. We also conduct online update sessions for our current officials on a regular basis.
