Youth Officials Training Recap from the Riggs Brady Benefit Lacrosse Tournament

This past Saturday twenty five young men completed the Level 1 lacrosse training program hosted at the Brady Benefit Tournament. These new officials exceeded the expectations of the trainers during the classroom session on Friday night and the field training on Saturday afternoon.

Each trainee officiated two halves while shadowed by an experienced GLOA official. We would like to thank Eric Sanders, Jeff Greene, Brian Work,  Damian Kavanagh, Doug Congleton, and Sonny Pieper for volunteering their time and effort to help these new officials through the field training.

The GLOA would like to thank the Brady family and all of the staff at the tournament for providing a fantastic venue and for promoting how lacrosse families rally around each other in difficult times.

Remember there is still available youth training in September!
