NCLRA Training Schedule

2023 Season

Hello Ladies and Gentlemen,

General meetingNCLRA Annual General Meeting.
Trainings – they are coming up –  but we have moved them closer to the start of the season so there is less of a gap between the meetings and the first games of.  Everyone needs to be re-certified every season.  We cover new rules, 2023 points of emphasis, interpretations of issues from past seasons as well as any questions that you have.
Below are the training dates available for your choosing. You have 2 options to attend each of 2 training sessions.

The training will take place via Zoom video and it is required that all Level 2 officials attend 2 sessions and the General Meeting, and all Level 1 officials must attend 2 Sessions, plus the the On-Field Training (L1.3.1) and the General Meeting.

If you are new to lacrosse officiating or you are a high school age person, you must participate in Level 1 Training sessions. If you are an experienced Level 1, then please also join us on Level 2 sessions. For all adult officials, you must participate in the two Level 2 training sessions.

(Example -> Level 2.1.1 = Level 2/Course #1/Session #1. Level 2.1.2 = Level 2/Course #1/Session #2. A Level 2 Official will have the option to attend one of these two sessions to satisfy completion of Course #1. Then the Level 2.2.1 and 2.2.2 provides an option to choose one of those sessions to satisfy completion of Course #2. This same format applies to Level 1 officials. Choose between Level 1.1.1 OR 1.1.2, and choose between Level 1.2.1 OR Level 1.2.2 )

Subscribe to the below calendars to stay up-to-date!

The Zoom Webinar holds up to 100 participants.  If by chance we reach the 100 maximum, please log onto the next scheduled session.  Please show up on time (or early), I will be ready at ~15 minutes before start time to allow for a little happy hour.  In addition, we will be available for more discussion after the training, if you choose to stay.

This webinar will focus on 2022/23 POE, 2022/23 Rule Changes, Updated Protocols, and steps to prepare mentally and physically for the upcoming season.

Again, we would hope every Level 1 and Level 2 official will be attending one of the meetings. In the meantime, please get in shape and please read your rule books. NCAA games are on TV, so feel free to catch some of those to look at mechanics, positioning, communications, etc.

As always, please reach out to me with questions. We are all looking forward to making this transition into the season as smooth as possible.  Be safe out there and we look forward to seeing you.
