The Georgia Lacrosse Officials Association is offering a training session on September 23rd to youth players (18 years old or younger) interested in officiating youth lacrosse. The GLOA had a very successful training session this past weekend. Twenty five young men completed the US Lacrosse Level 1 Officials Training Program by going through four hours of classroom training, station training, and field training. The twenty five that completed the training are now qualified to officiate youth lacrosse at any league in Georgia.
If you are interested in becoming certified to officiate youth lacrosse I highly suggest registering for the September training session. The following is provided by the GLOA website www.galaxref.com.

Atlanta Youth Lacrosse will also be training youth officials during the 2010 Fall Season. If you are a youth or adult interested in officiating for Atlanta Youth Lacrosse please email Gordon Corsetti at firstname.lastname@example.org. While Atlanta Youth Lacrosse does not certify new officials to officiate in other leagues as GLOA does. Gordon shadows and teaches each youth official and provides a solid foundation that will serve these officials well if they decide to complete the Level 1 Officials Training with the GLOA.
Yours in Lacrosse,
