    ABOUT THE STUDENT OFFICIALS ASSOCIATION (SOA)

    The UW-L Student Officials Association (SOA) recruits, trains, and schedules sports officials (referees, umpires) for all officiated Intramural activities. The organization is comprised of students interested in the field of sports officiating and meets monthly to discuss sport-specific points of emphasis, WIAA and NFHS rule implementations, training clinics, prepare for certification exams, study game film, and much more! The purpose of the SOA is to enhance the overall participant experience related to contest officiating in Intramural Sports in addition to introducing prospective student officials to the many components officiating brings to the UW-L campus and general La Crosse community.
