Waynesville Saint Robert Officials Association Patch
Waynesville Saint Robert Officials Association

The Waynesville/St Robert Officials Association mission is to serve all officials for various sports in the Waynesville, St. Robert, Fort Leonard Wood area of Missouri. WSROA coordinates with the local High Schools to provide top quality officials for their sporting events. All officials in our association are required to be registered and licensed as officials by the Missouri State High School Activities Association (MSHSAA) headquartered in Columbia, Missouri. This affiliation also provides a membership with the National Federation of High Schools and provides for liability insurance when working sanctioned high school matches.

Association Patches and US Flag

Everyone should have an association patch to be worn on your striped official's shirt for football and basketball. In case you don't - the patch should be sewn on the left front of the shirt one-half inch above the pocket. On shirts without pockets, the patch should be in the same general area as on shirts with pockets. The US Flag should be sewn on the right sleeve of your shirt or jacket - 1 inch from the shoulder seam. The flag should have the stars facing toward the front of the shirt. Association and MSHSAA patches are available for purchase.
