US Lacrosse 2011 Rules Test Posted

The US Lacrosse 2011 Rules and Mechanics tests have been posted and the link in our menu has been updated to the new location. Based on conversations during out February training sessions, if you have already completed the 2010 test you are clear to officiate this season, but we would prefer you also take the 2011 tests as well. Please note that when you log in for the first time, you will be asked which rule set you would like to be tested on. During this selection please be sure to select “NFHS Only”. Additionally, please make sure that you specify “District 11” and “Idaho Lacrosse Officials Association” from the drop-down menus.

Please note that all officials are expected to complete this test each year to ensure consistency within the ILOA.
