The GLOA, in partnership with the Georgia Lacrosse Foundation (GLF), North Forsyth Youth Lacrosse Association (NFYLA) and Copperhead Lacrosse will hold two boys lacrosse officials certification clinics. The first class is scheduled for Saturday, August 24 at North Forsyth HS and the second class will be held on Sunday, September 8, at Evans Middle School in Newnan, GA. Participants only need to attend one of the two classes. These clinics are to officiate boys lacrosse only.
This training is for youth officials (14-18 and still in high school) who are current US Lacrosse members.
Adults (18 and over and graduated from HS) who wish to officiate with the Georgia Lacrosse Officials Association need not be US Lacrosse members, but they are HIGHLY encouraged to join.
The cost of the training is $50. All participants will receive an NFHS Rule Book, USL Mechanics Manual, laminated officials pregame, Fox 40 Finger Whistle, and a Penalty Flag.

We are in a major push to recruit new officials for the Spring season and fall training is a great way to get those new to the sport up to speed quickly.
There is a possibility a third class will be offered but as of yet, details have not been confirmed.
