Fairness in Competition

The world of sports and athletics thrives when supported by well trained and qualified officiating. Allegheny Lacrosse Official's Association is a leading Lacrosse Referees Association serving the areas of Southwestern Pennsylvania and Northern West Virginia. Our team is committed to providing training, certification, re-certification, and assessments for new and experienced officials who are responsible for promoting safe and fair play for athletes of all ages and levels of competition.

Official Announcement


In accordance with the Governor's guidance, alongside other states across the country, the PIAA announced a cancellation of the entirety of the Spring Sport season. Unfortunately, this also entails a lack of a lacrosse season. We are greatly sorry that we will not be able to take the field this year, as our student-athletes are surely regretting the same reality. However, we are committed to stand by the PIAA for the safety of everyone involved with the sport. More information can be found here.



Whether or not you've played lacrosse before, we always welcome individuals who are looking to help young student-athletes advance their own personal skills. If you or someone you know is looking to get involved in an active, leadership role within the lacrosse community of Western PA and Northern WV, check out our checklist of steps to take to earn your USLacrosse and PIAA Certifications in Boy's Lacrosse Officiating.
