  • 10U and 8U games, 2 junior refs or 1 adult ref.

2 adult referees will be automatically assigned to all games between 14U Tier 1 teams as these games are played with Full Checking rules.

Towns can request 2 adult rated refs for any games (at least one week ahead) and the assignor will make best efforts to assign 2 adults.

All officials must be USL certified.


Junior Referee Requirement:

CONNY and US Lacrosse policy prohibits junior referees from officiating a game solo.  This is a risk management policy that protects junior officials and programs from unnecessary liability in case of an accident. 


Payment of officials:

Towns are responsible for paying their refs at the game (by cash or check) or by mail within 2 weeks of game date.


Adult Referee Scheduling:

The Officials Assignor (Kim Jones )will assign the appropriate adult rated and adult youth refs through the Arbiter system for each 14U and 12U game entered on the CONNY site.  Towns have the option to obtain adult referees on their own.

Towns may request adults for 10U and 8U games from the assignor.


Junior Referee Scheduling:

Towns are responsible for scheduling junior refs for home games.   In the event a town cannot find a junior ref, they must notify Kim Jones, preferably at least one week ahead.  It is recommended that towns share junior refs with neighboring towns.
