Western North Carolina Official’s Association ( WNCOA ) is looking for sports lovers to give officiating a try. The number of officials has dipped to an all-time low across the state of North Carolina. WNCOA services 23 public high schools and 7 private high schools along with 26 middle schools. With our current number of officials, we are unable to provide umpires or officials to all of our schools. WNCOA furnishes baseball and softball umpires in the spring and football officials in the fall. Come out and give officiating a shot, get back in the game. You can make as much as $400 plus extra per week.
