US Lacrosse Level 1 training is targeted at officials with little or no experience in officiating men’s lacrosse. The goal of the training is to introduce the basic rules and mechanics necessary to facilitate a safe and fair game. While the participants attend an eight hour class and a field training, the amount of information covered is massive. Few adults, let alone high school students can absorb everything that is literally thrown at them. In order to improve, new officials must review their rule books and mechanics manual, review situations, ask questions, and work games. As I tell all my students, this course is the beginning of your training; by no means is it the end. With that in mind, ALO has made the all four ALO Training PowerPoint presentations available on the Presentations page to review on your own. In addition you can find the US lacrosse Youth Rules as well as Two and Three Man Mechanics presentations.
