How do I get games?

Please note that successfully completing the US Lacrosse training and the passing the exam does not guarantee new officials games.  ALO does NOT assign games. New officials need to contact the assignors for the league or the teams in their areas and request assignments.

USL Webinar: Men’s Game Officiating Online Course

ONLINE CertCompleting the Men’s Game Officiating Online Course, or what we call the “Webinar,” is a requirement for all Level I US Lacrosse officials.  US Lacrosse’s Officials’ Education Program online courses teach fundamental lacrosse rules and penalties through diagrams, video and interactive instruction. This course is exclusively available and FREE to US Lacrosse members. It is required for officials’ certification and STRONGLY recommended for coaches and anyone who wants to understand the rules of the game.

That being said, getting into the course can be a bit wonky. You must be able to log into your US Lacrosse account on the main USL website: .  You will “purchase” the free course on the main USL site and then move to the USL online education site ( to actually take the course

These are the most common problems we have encountered:

  • Using the Chrome browser on a Mac.  Use Safari.
  • Not being a registered USL member. Join USL or renew your membership.
  • A child’s account being linked to a parent’s account.
    Contact or call  (410) 235-6882 x102 (Mon. – Thu., 8:30 am to 7:00 pm , Fri., 8:30 am to 5:00 pm).
  • Logging in with a parent’s account and the class being credited to the parent. Be sure to use your login and password.

Once you have completed the course you will be shown a certificate. Save a copy for your records or be sure to print it and  bring to your training class.

If you have problems, do not panic.  we very much prefer that you complete the webinar before the class, but it is not a deal breaker.  However, you must eventually complete the webinar and will not be allowed to register for field training until you do so.

As always, contact me with any questions.
