UMPIRE TRAINING AND CERTIFICATION

Umpire training for 2016 has been completed. 175 individuals attended new and returning umpires clinics as part of their requirements to earn certification as a women’s lacrosse official. Over 120 of these individuals have completed the rigorous training process and are now in an elite group that is certified to officiate women’s lacrosse games in Washington State. Congratulations.

Umpire Tip

PRE-GAME STICK CHECK PROCEDURE

Recently, US Lacrosse issued a revision to Appendix B of the Rule Book regarding stick stringing. For this season only, US Lacrosse is allowing the thongs to be knotted around the edge of the ball stop for high school games (this is specifically not allowed in the NCAA). This will not be allowed in the 2017. Please tell coaches that next year, this will not be allowed.
