Boys Officials Training

​The following information is from the Montana Lacrosse Assocation: 

Please consider becoming an official soon. 

  •  As of January 7, 2016 the Montana Lacrosse Association has only 17 new boys referee prospects. This is well short of the 30+ new refs we need to officiate the 2016 season. Flathead Lacrosse will need to recruit 4-6 new officials for this season.
  • Each program is expected to recruit 1 new official for every 25 players. One program has recruited 10 of the 17 prospects, two other programs have 3, and several programs have recruited ZERO.
  • As stated in the MLA Call To Action, we will cancel games if we do not have adequate officials to safely play. Programs that fail to recruit an acceptable number of new officials will have more games canceled than those that successfully meet the recruiting goal.
  • The online official’s classroom sessions begin Monday February 1, 2016. Only 2 weeks remain to recruit 15-25 new prospects.
  • It is imperative that all programs make a concerted effort to identify a significant number of new officials.  

Below is all the important information regarding the boys officials training.

Season 

The MLA competitive season will begin with games on March 26th and conclude by June 5th. Most games are played on weekends. Missoula area has some Thursday and Friday evening games. A typical weekend of games provides the opportunity to officiate several games the same day.
