The annual rules exams offered for men’s and women’s lacrosse officials for both the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) rules and the US Lacrosse youth rules are now available online.

“We’ve made some improvements to the design of the tests to really help ensure that the officials have a firm understanding of the rules,” said Charlie Obermayer, senior manager of officials’ development for US Lacrosse.

The new design expands the test beyond multiple-choice answers to include matching options for designated questions, and utilizes both diagrams and video in the questions.

Passing the test annually with a score of at least 85 percent is required for officials to be certified as an official by US Lacrosse. The only way to insure that grades are accurately recorded for officials seeking certification is to take the test online through the US Lacrosse Learning Management Portal.

The tests are designed for men's and women’s game officials, but are accessible for any US Lacrosse member seeking to improve their knowledge of the rules.
