US Lacrosse has developed an alternative to classroom training due to the COVID-19 situation.  Video Instructions for accessing the training here

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.

These learning and development opportunities are to supplement or replace local in-person training opportunities for this season that may be lost, this curriculum is offered to our member officials to stay involved in officiating lacrosse and to prepare them for games once they resume.

On-field portions and evaluations will have to be postponed until once games resume and summer and fall tournaments may provide us an opportunity to conduct those.
