Welcome to the Georgia Sports Officials Association (GSOA)
We train, certify and assign games to baseball umpires within Gwinnett County and the surrounding area youth recreational leagues, from T-Ball, travel ball all the way to Age 19.
Quality Training & Other Benefits:
- Quality ongoing training.
- Professional treatment.
- Annual "Star Camp".
- Online access to rules, policies/procedures and forms.
- Over 30 years of experience by top professionals.
- No limit to game assignments, Year-end bonus

All of our baseball umpires are independent contractors. We encourage our umpires to belong to other associations and leagues as well. It simply makes for better umpires overall, as we share our experience.
Promoting Good Sportsmanship & Fairness
At GSOA, our focus is on the kids we serve. Our umpires display good sportsmanship, fairness and mature conduct to young athletes. We make sure the game is played amicably according to the rules, and we are there to settle minor differences in a reasonable manner. We model good behavior and community skills.
Membership & Pay Schedule
For a small annual fee, and after a background check and competency determination, GSOA members can virtually get an unlimited number of game assignments, as well as receive ongoing training and assistance. We pay a very competitive wage per game, plus a ‘consistent performance bonus’ to be paid at the end of the year as an incentive for upholding GSOA standards.
