Call for Referees

November, 2014

With well over 100 OHSLA teams to officiate at the Varsity, JV, and JV2 levels, the Oregon Lacrosse Officials Association is always looking for a few good men (or women) to make the calls on the fields across the state.  More officials are needed every day to help grow the sport and continue to improve the quality of play.  To help folks get involved, the OLOA has created a training system including classes, mentoring, and on-field training at tournaments like SALI.
  • OLOA conducts training all over the state.  There are classes in Portland, Salem, Eugene and Bend.  Portland area training starts on January 6th at the Oregon Sports Authority building on Western Ave. classes are 7-8:30pm weekly. 
  • Attendees are expected to make at least 7 out of the 10 classes, but if you have playing experience there might be some flexibility.
  • All officials that complete the course will receive approximately $100 in free supplies to help get them on the field.
  • Pay starts at $47.50 for a JV game and $57.22 for a varsity game.
For more answers about officiating for the OHSLA, check out the OLOA FAQs page for prospective Officials

If you are interested please contact Don Huber (don11660@gmail.com) or Russell Dean (russelltdean@gmail.com) and they will put you on the OLOA email list for updates about classes and get you in touch with the trainer in your area.

2014 OHSLA/Nike All Star Games

June 14th & 15th

The inaugural 2014 OHSLA/Nike All Star Games of Oregon in Sisters were a tremendous success.  Teams from five conferences made it to Sisters (Midwestern, Columbia, North Valley, Pacific and High Desert).  Each team got four games in on Saturday & Sunday in an abbreviated tournament format.  After the Saturday games there was lasagna dinner for all the players, followed by bonfire for the players sleeping in the yurts at Sisters HS.  On Sunday, after a player breakfast, there were couple of closing games including random players game using the time old "sticks-in-a-pile" selection format.

Despite some conferences not being able to muster teams for the weekend, by all reports a fun time was had by all.  The OHSLA thanks the hard work of Jeff Melville for spearheading the logistics of the weekend, Bill Daye of Nike Lacrosse for uniforms, and most of all Sisters Park & Recreation, volunteers, and staff at Sisters High School for hosting this fantastic event.

Check here for the weekend recap with some additional pictures from Coach Melville.
