New Ref Details

Greetings – and THANX for your interest in helping grow Idaho lacrosse!

  1. Send an email to “” stating your intent to attend, plus detailing any previous lacrosse and/or sports referee experience.
  2. Register with US Lacrosse for the current year (Note: The USL year ends the end of September, so if you join in the fall, be certain that you register for the “next” year), and you MUST ADD”Official” status to your membership. This can be added for free to an existing membership – contact US Lacrosse via telephone.
  3. Prior to the classroom training, it is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED to take the US Lacrosse On-Line Men’s Official Training course. It is excellent, and GREATLY assists new refs to understand the basics and leverage the classroom & field experience training. Please review the On-line Course Page Under the Resources menu to the right of this page.
  4. Idaho Lacrosse Officials Association (ILOA) does not charge for training, and our annual dues are taken from your first ref payment – we try to make your introduction to our ranks as simple & painless as possible!
  5. Please review the Uniform Requirements page under Resources. You do NOT need ref gear prior to training – and the needed gear will be discussed at the training.
  6. You will need to complete the ILOA Independent Contractor form and an IRS W-9 to supply the ILOA with your social security number prior to being paid. Links to these forms are found in the right Navigation area.
