No Class Schedule This Spring

Unfortunately due to the demands of adult training and the beginning of the high school and college lacrosse seasons, we have not been able to schedule a class this Spring..  We will definitely have multiple classes next Fall.
All the information on referee certification for boys lacrosse can be here on the website.
Send me an email to and I will mark you as interested and will contact you with info once a class is scheduled.
