About Us

ECOA was built by creative people for creative people: no wonder that our team is comprised of the most successful in their basketball craft but in their professional lives as well. But it’s our staff’s unique mix of experience, interests and passion that makes the difference. We have very intentionally put together a team that combines experience from high school officiating to the NBA and the result is we are able to meet the unique needs of each client. Our team has a dynamic background as business leaders, educators, healthcare administrators, aerospace, general contractors, military and professional basketball officials. We surround you with the best in both their vocation and avocation.
