All adult GLOA officials are required to watch the GHSA online rules clinic via the GHSA learning platform AND complete the 50 question NFHS rules exam via Dragonfly in order to officiate GHSA Varsity and Junior Varsity games during the 2024 season.
Officials who do not complete these will only be assigned youth games and be required to join USA Lacrosse.
BOTH CLINIC AND TEST ARE MANDATORY.
- GHSA Online Rules Clinic: January 15 – February 5, 2024 via GHSA
- GHSA Online Rules Exam: January 22 – February 5, 2024 via DragonFly
The USA Lacrosse tests and the NCAA test DO NOT satisfy this requirement.
You MUST take the NFHS test via Dragonfly and watch the GHSA clinic.
This pre-season, we have made available rules quizzes and other resources as well as the 2024 Rules Changes Memo in order to give officials the opportunity to get into the rule book and hone their rules knowledge. Each quiz addresses one or two rules in the book.
To take the clinic go to GHSA Learning Portal
Login using your login ID and password. If you are a new GHSA official, click create new account and follow the instructions.
If you are a new official and do not officiate other GHSA sports you will need to register on the site to take the clinic. Click on the FAQ tab for instructions.
Please be sure to download the Clinic certificate that confirms you completed the clinic. We have had issues in the past and want to avoid confusion.
January 22 – February 5, 2024
To take the GHSA test go to Dragonfly
Officials must complete GHSA registration and pay all fees to gain access to NFHS exam portal.
All users will need to sign into their Dragonfly account, go to their GHSA requirements and click on the exam requirement (see below). This will take you directly to the NFHS exam system.
Officials who have not set up an account with Dragonfly must do so in order to take the NFHS Exam. This simple setup process takes about two minutes and provides the NFHS and GHSA all the necessary information for the collection of results.
Please note that you must use the email address you use for Dragonfly in order to access the NFHS exam site. If you already have an NFHS account, that too must use the same email address and password.
If you do not see the test on your dragonfly account, be sure to complete your GHSA registration and pay all fees.
