The GreGKCOA Whistleater Kansas City Officials Association (GKCOA) is one of the largest officials’ association in the state of Missouri.  We are organized to:

* Assist member officials in improving their proficiency and efficiency in the interpretation and application of rules and officiating mechanics.

* Cultivate and improve the relationship between athletic officials and athletic directors, coaches, players, the media and they public in general.

* Promote and maintain the highest standards of officiating ethics for all athletic officials.

* Work in cooperation with MSHSAA in support of high school athletics.

The GKCOA primary purpose is to educate, train and support high school sports officials.  We do facilitate assignments in three of our sports (Basketball, Football and Volleyball); however, this is only in support of our primary purpose and game assignments are not a guaranty.
