OHSLA Points of Contact Conference Representative Coaches
Oregon Lacrosse Official Association contacts  


The majority of OHSLA inquiries should be directed through your head coach. While the league attempts to answer all inquiries within 24 hours, with over 50 Varsity teams and another 60 JV teams, each containing 15-30 players (and 15-60 parents), the league does not have the man-power to address large amounts of individual inquiries. We are volunteers and all have "real jobs" that we need to pay attention to and your team's head coach is our buffer to avoid this possible overload.

If you want to comment about a game, it's officiating, the conduct of a particular team, coach, or player, do not contact the league directly. The proper procedure in these types of situations is to have your Head Coach report to the league. The league will not respond to individual inquiries of these types.

That being said, there are situations we'd like to hear from you. Please contact the OHSLA if:

  • You have concerns regarding the OHSLA or have a contribution that you would like to give the league (we are a 501(c)(3) charitable organization).
  • You are available to help coach a team or would like information about starting up a high school lacrosse program.
  • You would like us to list a link to your website, advertise an open coaching position, or give information about an upcoming camp or clinic.
  • You need help or have questions regarding the operations of your current team.

When applicable, please be sure that on any contact information you let us know what team you are representing.
