Rick McCarrick was one of seven officials selected from the United States to serve as an on-field official for the 2020 World Lacrosse Men's U19 World Championship in Ireland this summer.

World Lacrosse has announced the administrative team, officials and officiating coaches for the 2020 World Lacrosse Men’s U19 World Championship, which will be held in Limerick, Ireland from July 9-18. The contingent includes 51 individuals representing 14 countries.

“We look forward to gathering this diverse team to provide quality officiating during the event. The process of preparing began several months ago and will continue through and beyond the Closing Ceremonies,” said Tom Sutton, Chair of Men’s Officiating for World Lacrosse.

More than 70 officials applied to represent the United States as officials at the world championship and from that group 24 were invited to participate in the tryout weekends for the U.S. U19 team in June and July. Twelve finalists were invited to officiate the Fall Classic in October, which featured the Canadian and U.S. national teams and reigning NCAA champion Virginia.

World Lacrosse asked for seven officials from the United States for the event and the following seven individuals will serve at the world championship, alongside Spike Decker (Rodman, N.Y.), who will serve as an officiating coach:

  • Eric Campbell (Beverly, Mass.)
  • Danny Dlugozima (Charlotte, N.C.)
  • Bill Doherty (Mansfield, Mass.)
  • Tim Genecco (Charlestown, Mass.)
  • Rick McCarrick (Whippany, N.J.)
  • James Reilly (Wolfeboro, N.H.)
  • Nick Schmitt (Hamburg, N.Y.)

Additionally, U.S.-based official Dick Pepper will be representing Ireland as a Co-Referee in Chief during the event.
