Becoming an official is a serious undertaking. You will be responsible for maintaining a safe, fair and fun contest ever time you officiate. You are in charge, not the coaches or the parents. When you join a league or association, you will be responsible for regularly communicating with assignors, league and team administrators and your fellow officials.
In order to empower and prepare students, we ask that if a student has a question, they should be the one to contact their trainer, not their parents.
Most of the informaiton we provide to students will be forwarded to parents
Parents for players under 18 are encouraged to have themselves carbon copied on all email communication. ALO will cc them on all class information.
