Summer New Officials & Re-certification Class Date & Time TBD

ALO plans to hold a new officials class as well as a re-certification class at the end of the 2014 season.  Dates and times to be announced. Please check back for details.  

New Officials Class

Youth (U.S. Lacrosse Level 1) Training is targeted at officials with little or no experience in officiating Boys Lacrosse. The focus at this level is to provide training for officials interested in officiating games at the sub-high school level. 

USLAXPATCHThe estimated cost of the training for new officials $40.  Participants will receive the National Federation of High School Boy’s Lacrosse Rules Book, Men’s Mechanics Manual,  Boys Youth Rules Guide, ALO Youth Pre-game,  Penalty Flag, and a Fox 40 Finger Whistle as well as USL patch upon completion of all requirements.

Anyone can participate in the training, including coaches, players and fans simply interested in learning more about the game. However, only ‘Official’ members of US Lacrosse receive some of the benefits of being a US Lacrosse Official. 

Class participants are encouraged to register with US Lacrosse  as an official in order to take the examination online, to receive their patches and for the insurance coverage required to officiate games. 

In addition to the class, new officials must complete the online Men’s Officials Webinar available through the US lacrosse website (see below), take the NFHS and Youth test through ALO and complete a field training.

In addition to the class, returning officials must pass both the NFHS and Youth test through ALO and complete a field training.  The class is free.
