To Become a Junior Official in Colorado:

All junior officials must be certified annually in order to work CGLA and off-season games

Requirements for all officials in order to become certified or renew annual certification: 

  1. US Lacrosse registration – current officials may submit renewal directly to US Lacrosse – renewal date is October 1.

US Lacrosse Registration – online link for ALL officials

  1. Register with CWLOA and MAIL annual $25 dues (First timer bonus: Starter Kit included with whistle, yellow flag and cards.  Add $18 for officials short-sleeved shirt)

If link is broken, dynamically link to https://goo.gl/forms/q19tttOwpeo1xm3B2

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.

ALL youth MUST take & pass this exam! The exam is ONLINE.
