Women's Lacrosse is a fast paced game that resembles the playing strategies of basketball and field hockey on a soccer field. As Lacrosse participation explodes in Colorado, there is a huge demand for women's lacrosse officials at all levels. The CWLOA needs new umpires to meet this ever growing need. Perhaps you or someone you know is interested in getting involved in this dynamic game. Contact us and we will help you get started on this fun and rewarding adventure. We look forward to seeing you on the field!
Check out US Lacrosse's video, Starting Out in Stripes, an informative introduction to the game.
