About GPOA

In 1995, the Greater Potomac Officials Association (GPOA) was founded by five military personnel. The Association was formed to afford active duty military personnel assigned to Washington DC an opportunity to officiate military sport contests in a military surrounding.  Our first priority and mission objective is to provide trained professional sports officials’ for military installations as well as civilian organizations within the National Capital Region. The Association’s commitment to provide highly qualified sport officials is the foundation of this organization. GPOA’s mission is to “Support America’s Troops through Sports Officiating”.
