Presentation were created by GLOA board member Greg Hite, US Lacrosse Clinician and Lead Trainer. All comments, criticisms, suggestions or ideas are welcome.

You can find The 2020 Three-Man Presentation and video at the bottom of this page.

First Year Adult and Youth Official Training

These are the most recent presentations and include the 2020 rules changes.

These Videos and 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 videos 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.

Trainers are encouraged to use these videos to flip the classroom and keep participants engaged before or in-between training sessions.

If anyone has comments, suggestions or concerns with any of the presentations, please feel free to reach out to me with your feedback.
