Referee Accreditation Set

The Australian Lacrosse Referees Association (ALRA) Victoria has scheduled two single evening sessions for this year’s referee accreditation. One on May 2nd at Kangan Batman TAFE Broadmeadows Campus and another on May 9th at Monash University Caulfield Campus.

The evening event includes a forum with ALRA referees and a test for aspirants and seasoned overseers, whose two-year accreditation has expired. Referees who took their accreditation last year will also need to undergo the reaccreditation “due to new rule changes.”

“There have been significant rule changes which must be reviewed and tested,” said ALRA Victoria in its bulletin.

The participants must achieve at least a 60% passing mark in the test that will focus on game management, positioning, and rules changes. They will also receive the 2012 ALA rule book, presentation notes, and a card for accreditation passers.

The accreditation, a standardizing measure of lacrosse men’s games, is good for only two years. Accredited referees will also get an additional payment for every match they officiate.
