As the spring season is underway, all of our trainers are working youth, high school and college games; often times 5-7 to seven days a week. This makes holding training classes and field training very difficult. Summer leagues are most often elite or high level travel teams that necessitate experienced adult officials and so no field trainings opportunities are available.
ALO will resume new youth official classes for Boys lacrosse this fall.

Due to the lack of recreation league games over the summer, ALO was unable to put together a summer training class. However, we are in discussions with a number of leagues and are finalizing dates for classes on multiple dates and locations with field training opportunities to follow. Most likely these will begin late August, early September. Please check back for details.
I apologize for the delay in getting back to you regarding field training.
With the icy weather at the start of the season, we had a delay in getting the youth game schedule and have had a slew of high school and college games rescheduled. Unfortunately the youth games we have used in the past at AYL are now later in the afternoon and are competing with games our trainers already have been assigned.
I am currently working on finding trainers who are available on the weekends as well as alternative games. As soon as I have spots available I will let you know.
Right now, you should be securing your uniform. You can check out the info on what to buy and where to get it, look here
As always, keep reading the rules book and the manual.
If you have questions, let me know.
