Become a Lacrosse Official

Lacrosse is a fast growing sport and the need for officials is higher than ever!

It is generally officiated by two referees and are constantly moving. Knowledge of the game is important as roles when officiating can rotate and change. Communication with your partners, coaches and players is important. Officials attend training each year to grow their development as it is vital to know position and rules regarding the game.

This is a great way to give back to the sport and stay in shape it's a good way to make some money! Whether it is a part-time job or a side hustle - game schedules provide you flexibility.
