Intermediate Umpire Training

Intermediate Umpire Manual (Cover)After the New Umpire Training package, the next step is what could be called training for Intermediate Umpires.  An Intermediate Umpire is defined here as a Girls Lacrosse Umpire who has had an initial (first year) rating and is in at least his or her second year.  These Umpires are seeking either a Level 1 or Level 2 rating.

This Intermediate Umpire Training Manual is based on the Level 1-2 Rating Form from US Lacrosse:

New Umpire Training Module - Two Person Crew

13094-sprinting-girl-lacrosse-player-stickerAt the 2018 All-Umpires Training Clinic for the Kentucky Lacrosse Umpires Board I was assigned to teach the Two Person Crew module to first and second year Umpires.  US Lacrosse provided a good PowerPoint Presentation and script as a resource for teaching this module.  I "tweaked" the PowerPoint Presentation, added a narration, and saved it as a video which has been posted on YouTube for future reference. 


2018 Penalty Reference Card

If you want an easy reference for Girls' Lacrosse penalty administration, take a look at this reference card.  You may download and print the pdf files.  Laminate the two  printed cards making a front/back.  They should fit into the pocket of your uniform pants or shirt.

I suggest that you NOT refer to the cards during the game, but they are a good, quick reference for before the game, at halftime, or after the game.

Also, as a part of this file there is a sample improvements card.  Every Umpire should identify three parts of his or her game to improve.
