Training Events

"Our mission is to create a safe environment where lacrosse players can have fun while learning to play the game by the rules."

Note to parents: Being a successful lacrosse official requires a high level of responsibility and maturity. If a high school student has the requisite level of responsibility and maturity, he or she should be able to complete the process on his or her own. Because of that, we ask that parents refrain from e-mailing or calling on behalf of their children. If your child has a question or issue, please have your child address it with one of the instructors or training coordinators.
