Taking the 2020 Tests
As we need to do every season, you need to take BOTH the NFHS and Youth tests. You should have received an email from USL reminding you of this.
It is the same process as last year, just new rule book. Go to Learning.USLacrosse.org
You should also have received your NFHS rulebook from US Lacrosse by now.
NOTE: Adult USL officials need to take the GHSA Clinic
and Test in addition to the US Lacrosse tests!
US Lacrosse Membership
If you did not receive an email or your rulebook or have double accessing the two tests please call the US Lacrosse Member Services line to make sure that your membership is up-to-date, you are listed in the system as a boy’s official, and have selected to receive the NFHS rule book each year.

Becoming a Certified Youth Official for the First Time
Unfortunately we do not have any training classes scheduled for Youth officials this season in Atlanta. To date, none of the youth leagues have contacted me to schedule field training games despite repeated requests.
With the NCAA and GHSA season schedules coming out and the various adult training events we need to attend, scheduling in the Spring is a very big challenge.
We will have multiple classes for both youth and adult next Fall, usually around Labor Day Weekend.
If you know of anyone who is interested, please send an email to me and I will mark them as interested and w contact them with more details as soon as they are confirmed.
Information specific to becoming a youth official can be found on our USL Youth Certification Information page.
