The GLOA, through support of its members and others, supports two charitable funds, the Ron Mallonee Fund and the Kevin Moore Fund.
View the Memorial Page for more information on Ron, Kevin and the funds in their names.
The GLOA has four main goals:
- To provide game officials for the sport of men’s lacrosse, primarily at the high school level, in the State of Georgia
- To instruct and educate players, coaches, parents, and fans of the sport of lacrosse and the rules governing play
- To train, educate, and certify persons for officiating the sport of men’s lacrosse
- To promote the growth and development of the sport of lacrosse in the State of Georgia
The GLOA trainers spend the off-seasons coming up with new ways to engage adult and youth officials in the classroom and on the field. Our training videos have been viewed by officiating associations around the country.
Former GLOA trainer Gordon Corsetti wrote an officiating lacrosse book: “Advancement Rules: Improving Your Lacrosse Officiating” available on Amazon. And Lead Trainer Greg Hite writes on and maintains Atlanta Lacrosse Official at www.atlantalacrosseofficial.com, which is a terrific resource to officials of any experience level.
New and experienced lacrosse officials in Georgia reap the benefits of the training advances developed by the GLOA.
Code of Ethics
The GLOA believes the integrity of officiating rests on the integrity and ethical conduct of each individual official. This integrity and conduct are the very basis of the future well-being and growth of Lacrosse and the effectiveness of this Association.
Originally drafted by Dale Hall and Eric Rudolph on December 26, 2010, and accepted by the board shorty after, the GLOA Code of Ethics serves two purposes:
First, to provide our members a meaningful set of guidelines for their professional conduct and to provide them with agreed-upon standards of practice;
Second, to provide to others (i.e. players, coaches, administrators, fans, media) criteria by which to judge our actions as “professionals.”
Completion of this training qualifies the trainee to officiate both High School and Youth boys games.
