2021 ALL Junior Officials and Parent Officials

2021 modifications to Junior Official training

All training will be virtual via Zoom in 2021.   Although USL allows JO training for 14-18 year-olds,      we feel that a virtual training experience cannot provide the kind of hands-on and demonstrative experience needed to prepare a younger JO for game situations.  Hopefully, we can be in person next year and will open training up to the full age range then.  

Details about 2021 training are listed below.


Junior Officials (Teen/Players)

MWLOA recognizes that our high school players are an excellent resource and should have the opportunity to give back to the sport we love by officiating youth lacrosse games.  

 

Parent Officials (Officiate Grades 1-6 only)

Parents or other adults interested in officiating ONLY youth games (grades 1-6) are also welcome to participate in this training.  

Parents will be able to officiate their daughter's games.

 

NOTE:  There is no fee for Junior Official/Parent Official training in 2021.

Junior Officials and Parent Officials needing an officials' jersey will be asked to pay $15.


Previously certified Junior Officials and youth-game-only Parent Officials

MWLOA will offer a training session via Zoom for all JOs interested in being recertified for 2021.  There are two training dates; you need only attend one.

Training dates (attend only one): 

        Tuesday, April 6, 7:00 - 8:30 pm

        Monday, April 12, 7:00 - 8:30 pm

We ask you to do the following:

  • Pay membership dues to US Lacrosse for this year
  • Log on to your USL account and make sure that the email attached to your name is unique to you (i.e., not a parent email).  It is best to use a non-school email address to avoid having incoming mail blocked by a firewall.
  • Pre-register below.
  • Log on to your USL account and take the Online Officiating Course.  Even if you took it before, go online and either retake the entire course or take any new portions.  This step must be taken before the MWLOA training session.  (go to E-Learning à Catalog à Officials à Women’s Game Officials à Rules Courses and Rules Webinars)
  • Watch the 2021 Youth Girls' Rules Interpretation Video (https://www.uslacrosse.org/rules/girls-rules).  (Can also be found under Rules Courses and Rules Webinars)
  • After the recertification session, take the USL youth girls’ lacrosse rules exam online (we will review it during the MWLOA training session).  (go to E-Learning à Catalog à Officials à Annual Rules Exams à 2021 Girl's Officials Rules Exam à 2021 Girls Youth Rules Exam)


New Junior Officials:  limited to high school juniors and seniors and Parent Officials for 2021

MWLOA will offer a training program via Zoom for current high school juniors and seniors with lots of player experience who have not been previously certified. 

Training dates (attend only one): 

        Saturday, April 3, 1:00 - 4:00 pm

        Sunday, April 11, 1:00 - 4:00 pm

We ask you to do the following:

  • Pre-register below.  Contact Barbara Snapp if you have question (mwloatraining4umps@gmail.com)
  • Pay US Lacrosse and set up an account attached to your name that is unique to you (i.e., not a parent email).  It is best to use a non-school email address to avoid having incoming mail blocked by a firewall.
  • Email Barbara Snapp (mwloatraining4umps@gmail.com) with your US Lacrosse email and US Lacrosse member ID number.
  • You will have to take USL’s online officiating course, watch the 2021 Youth Girls' Rules Interpretation Video, and pass the USL youth rules exam.  The timing and instructions for these steps will be provided once you have paid USL dues and contacted Barbara Snapp
