Field Training Update

I apologize for the delay in getting back to you regarding field training.
With the icy weather at the start of the season, we had a delay in getting the youth game schedule and have had a slew of high school and college games rescheduled. Unfortunately the youth games we have used in the past at AYL are now later in the afternoon and are competing with games our trainers already have been assigned.
I am currently working on finding trainers who are available on the weekends as well as alternative games.  As soon as I have spots available I will let you know.
Right now, you should be securing your uniform.  You can check out the info on what to buy and where to get it, look here.
As always, keep reading the rules book and the manual.
If you have questions, let me know.

Match Emails in Arbiter and Merge Accounts

Due Date for Completing NFHS and USL Youth Tests March 8

Everyone, regardless of whether you are a first year official or are re-certifying for 2015, MUST complete BOTH the NFHS and USL Youth tests in two weeks (DUE DATE MARCH 8) or I will not be able to schedule you for a field training this Spring.
If you want to be a lacrosse referee you need to take care of your business. As always, check out the ALO website for information, join out Facebook page and check your email.
You can find out how to take the tests on the ALO tests page.
Be sure to read the instructions, particularly if you cannot log in to the system.  Only US Lacrosse can fix that, so you will need to email them at officials@uslacrosse.org.
Email BOTH your scores by sending me the email from Arbiter or taking a screen shot.
