3. Take US Lacrosse Rules Exams (NFHS Girls’ Exam and Girls’ Youth Exam) and the Girls’ Lacrosse Rules Online Course.

To get to testing:
* login to your account on uslacrosse.org
* go to Officials / Catalog / Officials / Women’s Game Officials / Rules Courses and Rules Webinar then you’ll see the Girls Lacrosse Rules Online Course. It will go through a process of asking you to ‘check-out’ but there will be no fees associated with it.  This is the process that puts it into ‘My Courses’.
Once you have the course, if you need to log off, when you go back in you should see it in ‘My Courses’.
Separately to get to the Girls and Youth rules exams: Officials / Catalog / Officials / Annual Rules Exams – then choose 2019 NFHS Girls’ Exam and 2019 Youth Girls’ Exam.  Again, after you have it, you should find them in ‘My Courses’ when you log back in.  We recommend that you click on Resources, print a hard copy of the exam, before completing the test online.
If you have trouble logging into uslacrosse.org, a call to them will solve that.  Phone US Lacrosse Membership: 410-235-6882 X 102.

    I have two daughters who are on the East HS team and Freshmen.
    They are interested in becoming junior officials.
    I have questions about the process.
