Fall Training Clinic for IHSA Officials

Dear Officials:  The 2018 season of boy's lacrosse is approaching.  This will be the first year the IHSA sanctions the sport and it is mandatory we all attend a training class to work IHSA games.

We have scheduled the fall IHSA training class on the evenings of Oct 24 and 25 at New Trier High School (7 North Happ Road, Northfield, IL) from 6:00pm to 9:00pm each night.  GLLOA will offer Level I training and Level II training at this clinic.  We will be in rooms 141 and 143 in building F on campus and attendance is mandatory both nights.  Doors will open around 5:30pm, so get there early and get a great seat near me up front!  We have space for 35 officials in each class, so do not delay in signing up.

This training is for high school qualification, but the material covered in Level I and II will qualify you for youth game officiating, as well.  GLLOA members are free at either clinic, all others must pay $50.  The 2018 sign up and pay-wall will be up soon on our website, so watch for that announcement. 

To sign up for Level I, please inform John Vetter ( and Dave Krok ( via email.  New officials and those with 2 years or less experience should attend this class.

To sign up for Level II, please inform John Vetter ( and Tom Cummings ( via email.  Officials with 3 or more years experience should attend this class.
