The Kentucky Lacrosse Umpires Board (KLUB) is tasked by US Lacrosse to provide training that will lead to certification as a US Lacrosse Girls' Umpire in Kentucky. First, KLUB has provided new umpire orientation and all umpire training throuogh ZOOM meetings. These meetings have taken place, but the recordings of these meeting may be viewed here (please excuse the poor video and narration quality (coughing due to COVID):
If you wish to have the PowerPoint presentation files they are available here as well:
The US Lacrosse Girls' Umpires online training courses are being used this year for KLUB training. Umpires have until the end of the month to complete their specific track and pass the test. First or second year official will need to take the Level 1 Track. All others must take the Level 2/3 track. All Umpires will need to take the online rules course, the five or six courses included with each track, the HS as well as the Youth rules interpretations courses, and the 2021 Girls Youth and High School Rules Exam (only one exam). For most it has been nearly two years since any of us have had games so it is vital to watch and take in as much as you can.
If you have any issues with logging in or your courses the number to call at US Lacrosse is: 410-235-6882, x102 (member services).
Rating Day will be February 28 at Sacred Heart Academy in Louisville. Hopefully, KLUB will conduct ratings (field evaluations) on the two grass fields (the smaller Brescia grass fields used for Braveheart). If weather is an issue ratings (field evaluations) will be on the turf field. We are going to attempt to possibly have one field worked by a 3-person crew with the other one a 2-person crew.
For those taking the Level 2/3 track there is an online course on 3-person crew mechanics. Level 2 and Level 3 umpires must be familiar with 3 person crew mechanics, because these umpires will have the opportunity to attempt a Level 3 rating.
If anyone has any restrictions for February 28 let Chris Niblock (see contact information below) know ASAP!
