Adult Officials Clinics

The first step to becoming a women's lacrosse official is to attend a New Umpire Clinic. 

Adult Umpire Beginner Clinics are for prospective umpires 18 years of age and older. No prior officiating experience is required. These clinics include 8 hours of classroom instruction in 3 or 4 sessions. Completing the course, passing a 3-4 hour field rating session, joining USA Lacrosse and joining EMWLUA are required for completion.

Each clinic has its own schedule (with different dates and times), so be sure to read the course descriptions carefully. Space in each clinic is limited, and you must attend all meetings.

We look forward to seeing you at a clinic! If you have questions, contact our VP Development, by clicking on this LINK.
