Nassau County Women’s Lacrosse Officials Association (NCWLOA) believes an umpire is an integral part of the freedom, flow and spirit of the game of women’s lacrosse. It is necessary that the umpire have thorough knowledge of the game, personal integrity and the ability to sustain physical effort. The Official must also be concerned with encouraging the highest possible level of play and sportsmanship.

NCWLOA was organized to provide standardized officiating techniques through qualified and rated U.S. Lacrosse Women’s Division officials for public and private educational institutions, clubs, association teams and community recreational programs by: training candidates and new officials; providing current rated officials with the opportunities to update and improve their knowledge and officiating techniques through clinics and interpretation meetings.
