US Lacrosse has packaged over 25 online training opportunities for officials available at learning.uslacrosse.org

You can access these packages by:

  1. Going to learning.uslacrosse.org and log in using your US Lacrosse account
  2. Go to Catalog > 2 – Officials
  3. On the bottom there will be two different curriculum packages you may select based on the game you officiate.
  4. Click enroll and get started!

These learning and development opportunities are to supplement or replace local in-person training opportunities for this season. This curriculum is offered to our member officials to stay involved in officiating lacrosse and to prepare them for games once they resume. In addition, as US Lacrosse hosts live webinars over the next six weeks, we will add those webinars to the options in this curriculum.

All officials seeking certification or recertification for 2020 need to complete at least four of the courses or webinars offered, for credit towards their annual classroom requirement for certification. In addition, all officials must complete the annual rules exam, the rule interpretation webinar and the online rules and penalty course if they have not already done so.

Live Webinars

We will be hosting live webinars starting the week of March 23 and running through all of April. Women’s game webinars will be held each Monday evening and the men’s game webinars will be Tuesday evenings. Both will star at 9 p.m. (Eastern). You can register to attend these webinars live at www.uslacrosse.org/webinar.

You Make the Call

In addition, every Tuesday (Girls Game) and Wednesday (Boys Game) we will be posting our weekly You Make the Call video series on our US Lacrosse Facebook pages and they will be available at www.uslacrosse.org in the officiating videos section.

All of these resources are made possible by the generous support of our more than 450,000 members and our philanthropic donors. Thank you for helping us share this information with the lacrosse community.

Charlie Obermayer is the senior manager for the Officials Development Program at US Lacrosse.
