Thank you for your interest in becoming a girls/women’s lacrosse official. We look forward to having you as a member of the Colorado Women’s Lacrosse Officials Association (CWLOA). As an adult official you must be 18 years of age or over and out of high school. Please contact email@example.com if you have any questions.
All adult officials will need to complete the following steps to be certified for the 2021 season:
Step 1: Please renew your US Lacrosse membership annually at https://www.uslacrosse.org/
Step 4: MARK YOUR CALENDARS for the annual rules interpretation meeting. This is a yearly meeting required for all officials. If you have questions please contact Les Snively firstname.lastname@example.org
Step 5: Register with CHSAA ($10- HS Only) & complete your CHSAA background check on Arbiter (Both HS & MS). Background checks will be submitted through the Arbiter Colorado Central Hub, account 103372 and must be completed by both HS and MS officials. The cost is now $10. You must have registered with CWLOA and have been added to the Arbiter account in order to gain access to submit your background check. Background checks are good for 3 years. HOWEVER, only officials that work high school games need to submit the CHSAA fee. Multi sport CHSAA officials only need to submit one background check which is good for all sports they officiate. link: http://chsaa.
Step 6. Pass the online US Lacrosse rules test. To officiate you must take youth exam to officiate youth, and high school exam to officiate HS- if you will be reffing both you can take the combo test. The test is accessed through your US Lacrosse account and must be taken and passed each year. The tests can be found here https://uslacrosse-nle.
Step 7. Complete the US Lacrosse cultural competency online course. If you have taken this course for any reason in the past, you are not required to retake it. This is a one time requirement. The test can be accessed from this link: https://uslacrosse-nle.
Step 9. Register for additional training according to your experience level. There is a requirement of 6 hours of training to be completed each year. The rules interpretation meeting takes up 3 of those hours. Please contact Les Snively if you have any questions.
