The GLOA provides training to any adult, age 18 and over, interested in becoming a boys lacrosse official.
Adult Officials Training
High School Training sessions are held for prospective adult referees prior to the start of each lacrosse season in early January. Once the regular season begins, training for new officials ends. Please check the posts on the GLOA home page and the GLOA calendar for times, dates and locations.
Additionally, GLOA holds training classes during the summer and fall season. Completion of this training qualifies the trainee to officiate both High School and Youth boys games. If you are want to attend these trainings be sure to register at New Officials Registration. If you have questions, fill out our contact form on the Interested in Officiating page.
Note: High School level officials must be at least 18 years old and have graduated high school.
Youth Officials Training
The GLOA has partnered with Atlanta Lacrosse Official in order to train youth officials in the Atlanta area. Classes are offered periodically during the fall and spring lacrosse season. No classes are offered in the summer. Visit the ALO website for more information on upcoming classes and certification requirements.
Note: Youth officials must be at least 14 years old and two years older than the age group they officiate.
