About Us

Mojave Desert Officials Association

Only the finest in sports officiating


Our Mission:

Mojave Desert Officials Association was founded in 1958 with a single goal, and that was to provide quality officials for the teams and leagues of the High Desert and beyond. 

If all the world's a stage, then the theater of sports must be acknowledged as the highest art--improvised and unscripted, in the moment, and revealing its own versions of universal archetypes and Greek tragedy and comedy-worthy foes, heroes, and storylines.


We're always looking for new officials. If you'd like to join us, please contact us, or better yet, just come to a meeting!  We look forward to you joining us.
