Overview CONNY BOYS Officials Assignments Policy
CONNY requires that the home team must provide:
Two certified (patched) officials (US Lacrosse; Connecticut, New York, or Massachusetts high school; or USILA) at each CONNY 14U (senior) and 12U (junior) level game.
Lightning (10U) and below games will be 8v8 small field games. It is suggested that one certified official is at the 10U level, or two junior officials.
CONNY urges, but does not require, use of certified or CONNY-recognized officials for 8U and younger (Bantam) games.
Junior Officials: CONNY Boys Rules of Play permit high school students aged 16 and older to serve as officials provided they (1) complete a US Lacrosse or CONNY-approved apprentice officials clinic, (2) pass the 2019 CONNY Boys Online Rules Test, and (3) are properly equipped. Such Junior Officials may officiate 10U and 8U games, and may also serve as officials for CONNY 14U or 12U games, especially as a third official, so long as they work with certified adult officials. Under no circumstances will high school students under age 18 be the only officials working a CONNY 14U or 12U game. CONNY member programs served by lacrosse officials assignors other than WCLOA, or which obtain officials some other way, often utilize such Junior Officials.
However, WCLOA rules and procedures do not allow its members to work in conjunction with Junior Officials at any level of play. Thus, for programs served by WCLOA, Junior Officials will be assigned by each town's coordinator of officials, not the WCLOA, and cannot work with WCLOA officials in any capacity.
WCLOA certified officials (patched) fee:
$65/official/game for 10U and 8U
$70/official/game for 14U and 12U
Tournaments and Jamborees $65 assignor fee per event. Official rates are $60/hour per official. (Officials for the CONNY Tournaments are handled differently)
