RETURNING UMPIRE TRAINING INFORMATION FOR THE 2021 SEASON
- KLUB dues will not be collected for the 2021 season.
- ALL training, except for on-field ratings, will be done online. US Lacrosse’s Convention will be entirely online in 2021. The USL Convention (LAXCON) will be mandatory training and will be the only training available for those wanting to umpire in 2021. Your US Lacrosse membership must be current in order to attend/register for LAXCON. You may register on your own for $45 or KLUB will register you as part of a group and pay your registration fee ($35). If you wish to be a part of the KLUB group and NOT pay the registration fee, please insure that your USL membership is current and send your USL membership number to the training coordinator, Chris Niblock, not later that 28 December 2020. Once the sessions have been firmed up KLUB leadership will get back with everyone as to what sessions will be mandatory. USL will be able to provide lists of those who have watched online.
- There will not be a 2021 NFHS Girl’s lacrosse rulebook as last year’s will be used. There will, however, be a new test.
For now, individual umpires must communicate to Chris Niblock (email@example.com) regarding intentions for the 2021 season.
All Umpires will be hearing further from leadership regarding the pre-season training. KLUB understands that this is an unprecedented time and the waiving of the yearly fee ($55 for returning umpires) and the subsidizing of the USL LaxCon fees shows the commitment the Board has taken to helping everyone out and ensuring we are all prepared for whatever 2021 brings.
