Ever thought of becoming an Official?

Becoming a lacrosse official is a great way to stay involved with the game or give back to the game, but it's also an amazing way to earn extra money (or just money), yes, a side hustle, because not only do you get paid to stay in good health, but you also have amazing flexibility when it comes to setting your schedule. Want weekends? No problem. Want evenings? No Problem. Need some time off? No problem.

There are also ongoing opportunities to level up your skills so that you can continue to officiate at higher divisions.
Becoming an official is a great part-time job for youngsters and adults alike, current players or retired players alike, current coaches or retired coaches alike, and current parents or retired parents alike!
The best spot to get signed up to become a lacrosse official is through the ALRA website. On that site, you'll find clinic details, costs, and locations listed so you can register for the clinic closest to you and get yourself going.
