The leadership of the Kentucky Lacrosse Umpires Board (KLUB) has determined that the required training for all umpires – new and returning – will be completed online.
The US Lacrosse Convention (LAXCON) will be entirely online and will offer all the classroom instruction required for your first-year training. Online attendance of LAXCON, therefore, will be mandatory, and will be the only training available for persons wanting to umpire in 2021.
LAXCON will be “live” online beginning January 15-16, but all online webinars will be available “on demand.” You may view the webinars at home on your own schedule. USL will be able to provide lists of those who have watched online.
In addition, KLUB will register you for LAXCON and pay your registration fee.
You must be a member of US Lacrosse for KLUB to register you and for you to attend LAXCON. You will need to join US Lacrosse on your own and send your USL membership number to the training coordinator, Chris Niblock (email@example.com), not later than 28 December 2020.
All Umpires will be hearing further from KLUB leadership regarding the pre-season training. KLUB understands that this is an unprecedented time and the waiving of KLUB dues and subsidizing of the USL LAXCON fees shows the commitment of KLUB leadership to help to become a Girls Lacrosse Umpire.
If you need help joining US Lacrosse, please contact the state coordinator, John Slider (502.548.9712; 502.231.8118; firstname.lastname@example.org).
