Referees and Timekeepers Wanted!

by Andrew Prestwich

Barrie Minor Lacrosse is looking for Referees and Timekeepers for the 2022 season.  This is a great opportunity for young people to learn more about the game and make some money at the same time.  

If you were a Referee or Timekeeper in the past, please fill out the form so we know you are interested in 2022

Referees - The certification program is run by the Ontario Lacrosse Association and the Ontario Lacrosse Officials Association.  You must be 14 years of age to be certified.  Barrie Minor Lacrosse will help get you registered and after you've officiated six games for the association, we'll reimburse you 50% of your certification cost.  Pay per game ranges from $22 to $35 per game, details will be provided to those who are interested.

Information on Certification:

Timekeepers - BMLA will train qualified individuals to be timekeepers during our Rep and House League games.  Timekeepers must be 12 years of age or older and should have a basic understanding of the game.  There is no tolerance for timekeepers who can't concentrate on the game, use their cell phone in the time bench or are distracted by friends or family while working.  It's a vitally important role in the game, so we pay them $12 per game.

After filling out the form, a member of the board will be in touch to give you next steps.
