The GLOA is committed to meeting the demand for professional well-trained officials, but in order to keep pace with the growth of the sport, we need to recruit over 70 new officials for the 2018 season. Founded in 2002, GLOA is the premier lacrosse officials association in the state and assigns the vast majority of GHSA officials in Georgia, as well as most of adult, high school and youth games and tournaments throughout the year.
Training in January
Trainings are the first two Saturdays in January (6 and 13), info can be found here. You can learn game from experienced trainers in the classroom and veteran officials on the field.
No Experience Necessary
While having the played the sport is helpful, no lacrosse experience is necessary. Some of our best officials did not grow up playing or watching the sport. Basketball officials in particular tend to make the transition to lacrosse the fastest, but officials from other sports are highly encouraged to join! GLOA has a nationally recognized training program. Y
In addition to having the best seat in the house, lacrosse officials run around three and half miles per game so it’s a great way to stay in shape and you can earn extra money while doing something you love!
If you have any questions relating to the registration process, please contact GLOA at r[email protected].
