Commonwealth Lacrosse League and Kentucky Scholastic Lacrosse League Cancelled through 12 April 2020

Billing Logo
The Commonwealth Lacrosse League and the Kentucky Scholastic Lacrosse League have cancelled all games until 12 April 2020.  These leagues follow the policies of the Kentucky High School Athletic Association and the school systems where teams are located.

Games are also cancelled for the Middle School leagues in Kentucky until 12 April 2020.

League administrators will determine at a later date when or if the season will resume.

Umpires should maintain their blocks on Arbiter.  In order to be proactive umpire assignments will be made for the remaining scheduled games.  Rescheduling of games is yet to be determined; but if the season remains, priority will be given to district games.

Umpires should do what they can to maintain their skills and conditioning.
