The Florida Lacrosse Officials Association, also known as FLOA, is based in Orlando, Florida, and serves schools in seven counties in the surrounding area. FLOA is the go-to official’s service provider for all boy’s or men’s lacrosse programs operating in central Florida. Our association prides itself on the quality of our service and the skill and experience of our members. We work hard to recruit (and retain) the most qualified and dedicated individuals to join our team. As lacrosse officials we are often referred to as “the third team on the field” with good reason. Lacrosse referees have to work together; communicate with each other, coaches, players and spectators; and we must have a superior understanding of the rules of lacrosse. Positioning on the field or “Mechanics” is vitally important to making the right call and we need new referees who understand the concepts of professionalism, excellent personal appearance, preparation, and teamwork. Our most successful members understand that our primary job is to promote the sport of boy’s lacrosse at the High School, Middle School, and Grammar School levels throughout Central Florida. We accomplish our mission by providing training, certification and assignment services to our members as well as advocating for them at all levels of boy’s lacrosse.
Our training program is extensive and thorough, and we have shared our training program with other associations throughout the state of Florida and with USA Lacrosse. For anyone interested in working with FLOA in the central Florida area, please contact any one of our directors (see below) or go to our website:
