See the information below about the upcoming Zoom meeting training to become a Lacrosse official. Prior to the classes I would ask that you go to www.uslacrosse.org and sign up to become an official. They will ask you what association you want to be affiliated with select heartland area lacrosse officials(HALO). Also after you create an account and pay the online yearly dues please check out the video section on youth boys lacrosse this is where you will start officiating games at this level. Please let me know if you have any questions and reply to me that you are interested in becoming an official this way I can get you on the schedule this season provided you sign up and take the training. We will schedule on field training as soon as we can get a field and teams to set up a scrimmage prior to the season.

ILAX Board Members & Friends -- Happy New Year!!! For the past couple of years, your state association has partnered with US Lacrosse to hold coach development clinics in the Des Moines area. The in-person instruction has helped coaches become certified with US Lacrosse. We appreciate your support as these clinics have been well-attended.
Due to COVID, US Lacrosse will not be offering in-person instructional clinics before the upcoming spring season. Instead, your ILAX board wants you to be aware of a series of Level 1 & Level 2 US Lacrosse virtual workshops that are available in January with more coming in February. We know each year that Iowa clubs have new and existing coaches that want training, and it's easy to sign up online for times that match one's schedule.
The flyer BELOW provides more details about the workshops and a link to register. Please share with your organization's leaders and coaching staff as the season is right around the corner. The workshops are each capped at 25 attendees and will fill up fast. Let us know if you have any questions. Thanks. Beech Turner
