The Winter Basketball season begins with class training and registration clinics in October and on court sessions/scrimmages in November. Actual games begin the first weekend in December and conclude by the end of March. We officiate private high schools, high school recreation and intramural leagues, travel and middle/elementary school recreational leagues throughout Loudoun County.

We use National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) rules and guidelines for all games. High school basketball officials may also join the Virginia High School League (VHSL). You will receive basketball rulebooks and be eligible to take the high school test in November and qualify for assignment to all high school games we cover.


Softball season begins with training in March and ends in July. PVOA has various USA and VHSL contracts, including high school, and slow and fast pitch. We also umpire several USA, USSSA, and PONY fast-pitch and USA slow-pitch tournaments throughout the season.

USA slow-pitch and fast-pitch softball officials must register with USA and they may also register with VHSL to be eligible to take the high school test to umpire our high school games.
