Referee Information

2020 BCLA Referee Handbook
     Contains rule changes, examples of game reports, rules of emphasis, etc.

  • Referee Allocator - Dennis Hertslet
            (if you are interested in box reffing, field reffing or field umpiring, please send Dennis an email)

  • Box Head Ref - Curtis Gulliford (Please contact the Ref Allocator above with any queries)
  • Field Head Ref - Vacant

Referee Punctuality

  • It is very important that as a referee, you arrive at least 15 minutes prior to the start of the game you are scheduled to officiate & confirm that your partner is there as well.  
  • It is very important that games are started on time, but even more important that the game finishes on time in order to minimize the impact on all floor users.

Player / Referee Suspensions 

  • Please remember that if you are a player and referee, you must contact your respective referee allocator immediately if you are suspended as a player. 
  • You CANNOT referee while serving a suspension. 
  • Contact your allocator and advise them of the terms of your suspension so that they can rearrange the schedules accordingly.

Simple Rules while Refereeing

  • Please remember, that while reffing you should be wearing your "BCLA" approved referee jersey and black pants without any markings, (dress-style pants with a pocket for a ball are preferred). 
  • Jeans are NOT permitted even if you are only doing the 30 sec clock. 
  • You are also not to eat during a game, wear a hat, or listen to your iPod with ear buds. 
  • You are expected to concentrate on the game.

Box Lacrosse Score sheets

Please ensure that you fill out the game sheets by using a ball point pen and press hard because you have to get it through 4 copies. Please do not use a "sharpie" - it does not work for the other copies.
