Referee Recruitment
by posted 08/21/2014
 

Received the following email from the Girl's Referee Scheduler this morning.

Good Morning All,

I know the calendar still says it is summer and Spring Lacrosse is far from everyone’s mind but it isn’t too early to start recruiting officials.  As most of you know, we have a limited pool of officials in Jacksonville, New Bern, Greenville and other areas up north.  That being said, the “limited pool” has gotten even smaller as two of our officials will not be returning next spring as one has graduated from high school and moved on and another from college and moved on.

I am reaching out to all of you and am asking your assistance in helping me recruit new officials in your area.  If we don’t do such, we are going to have serious issues in getting all your games covered with two officials and/or getting them covered at all.

Becoming an official requires 6 hours (two sessions of three hours each) in a classroom setting and then three hours of on the field training.  It may not seem like a lot but for some reason we haven’t had much success in getting new officials to join our group.

I have reached out to the Club Program at ECU in hopes that we can recruit a couple of new officials from them.  If any of you have contacts at the High Schools or wherever else, please get the word out and have them contact me.

Thanks Much

Rich
