General Officiating


A new concept in online testing has been developed for ALA and is now available for all women's and men's officials to access for testing and progressing their accrediation. For umpires, this meets the testing requirement and will need to be followed by on field assessments. For referees, there are two sections of the test, both of which must be completed to meet the accrediation requirement.  

ALA extend our appreciation to Australian Lacrosse Referees Association South Australia and in particular Mark Polden for all his enthusiasm and work in making this online facility a reality. ALA will be conducting a review of online accreditation in the later part of the 2016 season in preparation to further developing online facilities for 2017. 

Any questions or comments can be forwarded to the ALA Director of Officiating, Kelvin Minerds at
