Welcome to WALOA

The Washington Area Lacrosse Officials Association (WALOA) is the largest boy's and men's lacrosse officials association in the Washington, DC Metro Area.  This includes the following areas:

We provide comprehensive training and support to help you become the best lacrosse official you can be. From junior officials (16-18) to top-level college officials to grandparents, we have a place for you. With over 200 active members, we can accommodate your life schedule and work with you to fund that work/life/lacrosse balance!

No experience is necessary because we will put you on a track to succeed! Officials from other sports are welcomed and tend to move up quickly and experienced transfer officials are also welcomed. We have room for everyone.

Come make some extra money, get some exercise, and be a part of the "fastest game on two feet!".
