Fall Youth & Adult Ref Training Complete

The GLOA in partnership with the Georgia Lacrosse Foundation (GLF) and the Metro Atlanta Youth Lacrosse Association (MAYLA) held a boys lacrosse officials certification clinic with two virtual  classes and field training.

Both sessions were recorded and are available on the GLOA’s youtube channel as are all individual presentations.

Sixteen new adult and sixteen new youth officials took the training and are now working on completing their tests.  Please be sure to welcome and mentor these rookies as they begin their officiating career!
