First Year Adult and Youth Official Training

These are the most recent presentations and include the 2019 rules changes.

These PowerPoint presentations are designed to address some of the key rules and mechanics for those seeking Level 1 certification and are based on US Lacrosse mechanics and National Federation rules.

We have laid out the presentations in the order in which they are covered in the training. Note that we have changed the order from previous years so that we get to the positioning and fouls earlier and leave the uniform and pre-game info for later.
