SC Lacrosse Officials Association


The rapid growth of lacrosse has been gratifying. In any new area, such as ours, there is always a need for officials. The sanctioning of lacrosse by the SCHSL now makes lacrosse an official interscholastic sport in South Carolina's public schools. This creates an even greater opportunity for men and women who want to consider officiating our great game. The pay is commensurate with other sports and the opportunity to work a lot of games is evident. Our season begins in January and ends in May but there are other tournaments and clinics throughout the year where officials are needed.

USL Level 1 training is offered prior to the start the season.  Training consists of 8 hours of classroom sessions and 4 hours on-field. Classroom sessions are offered online, via Go-to-Meeting, starting in late December and run through January. The on field portion  is conducted at various locations throughout the state occurring in February.   If you want to learn more about officiating lacrosse please contact us through our general inquiry form HERE
