US Lacrosse, Arbiter & the NFHS Partnership

US Lacrosse recognizes the important role that assigners of lacrosse officials play in the quality of experience for all participants.

Over the next three years the organization hopes to provide expanded support and resources for assigners of lacrosse for high school and youth as they look to responsibly provide qualified officials to support our rapidly growing sport.

2013-2014 Goals

US Lacrosse, its staff, and its volunteer leadership, have identified the following initiatives for 2013-2014:

  • Create a comprehensive guide of assigner’s best practices which can be a tool for new and experienced assigners to best execute their job and ensure quality of experience for all lacrosse participants involved in the high school game and below.
  • Develop an assignor-specific US Lacrosse membership category with specific insurance coverage and benefits with the assignor in mind.
  • Expand programming and training for assigners at the 2014 US Lacrosse National Convention.
