PVOA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that started in 1978 as Loudoun County Officials after members in our community saw a need for a professional sports officials organization. In 1982, Loudoun County Officials decided to change its name to the current Potomac Valley Officials Association.
Over the past 35+ years, PVOA has changed and evolved, but one thing remains the same: we are 100% committed to the development of youth (and adult) sports in Loudoun County and providing the best service we can to our customers.
PVOA is committed to supporting the sports leagues around Loudoun County by providing professional, qualified, and trained basketball and softball officials. As an association, we are dedicated to seeing the growth and development of youth sports in Loudoun County and are a willing partner with the leagues in helping them accomplish their organizational goals.
PVOA is led by a Board of Directors, who maintain and oversee the direction of the association. The current association members serving on the Board of Directors can be found here. Any member in good standing may run for a spot on the Board of Directors.
Each official must be a registered member of PVOA and is an independent contractor. We provide training to complement your knowledge in each specific sport of interest. Membership/annual dues for PVOA is $30/year. We have a special student membership rate of $15/year for members in middle/high school.
PVOA is a professional member of the National Association of Sports Officials (NASO).
