NATIONAL GRADING SYSTEM 

The National Grading System for officials who Referee Men's Field Lacrosse is a tool used by the ALA Men's National Technical Committee to compare the performances of officials in National events and State-Based competitions over time. 

This information is collated by the Assessors at National Tournaments, by the Chief Referees in each of the major lacrosse states, and by the ALA Referee in Chief for the minor states.

The ranking data is calculated over the last 4 years of officiating, using a depreciation over time formula. 

(Details of how this is calculated are contained in the MNTC Policy Attachment 'E' National Grading System document  on the ALA 'Downloads' page.)

This is one of many indicators used in selecting referees to officiate International and ALA National Championships. (MNTC Officiating Policy Attachment 'D' Selection Standards)
