MBYLL-EMLOA Referee Guidelines & Officials Rate Card

2021 Spring Season

The following Referee Guidelines and Officials Rate Card has been approved by Mass Bay Youth Lacrosse League (MBYLL) and the Eastern Mass Lacrosse Officials Association (EMLOA) leadership for the spring season.

MBYLL Pre-Game Checklist: Head Coaches & Officials must meet together to review the Mass Bay Youth Lacrosse League & Eastern Mass Lacrosse Officials Association mandatory Pre-Game Checklist and Coaches Card Presentation before the start of all MBYLL Classic and MBYLL Select games.

MBYLL Certified Coach’s Sideline Badge: EMLOA refs must check during the Pre-Game Conference that both Head Coaches—and ALL Select coaches—have a 2021 MBYLL Coach Badge with Certification Sticker. For Classic Games, a check that ALL coaches on the sideline have 2021 MBYLL Coach Badge (with or without certification sticker).

Season Goals & Guidelines: Our goal is all MBYLL Classic games will have two referees officiating at all L78, L56 & L34 league contests. We understand that many MBYLL Town Programs will not have the resources to do this. Two referees will only be mandated to be assigned & officiate all MBYLL L78 games, with one of the two refs coming from either the pool of MBYLL Sr. Associate Officials (SrAO) or AOs from the town of the home team, or a 2nd EMLOA ref can be assigned. MBYLL strongly encourages member programs to also deploy their town AOs to their L56 home games as a 2nd official—and their AOs also continue as a single ref at L12—so their AOs will get more experience, become better officials and all our games can be officiated with an extra pair of impartial eyes and the overall game experience improves. Town AOs can be promoted to Sr. AOs during season—and as a Sr. AO, they can also be the lead official at L34 games—when their experience warrants it AND ONLY after they are approved & signed off by a EMLOA clinician. NOTE: An AO promotion to a Sr. AO is NOT automatic. Town AOs must demonstrate a strong knowledge of the rules, maturity level on the field and solid game mechanics before they can be nominated to be considered for a Sr. AO promotion.

All MBYLL Select games will be officiated with two EMLOA referees at $75/ref/game. If two EMLOA refs are not available, then one of the two referees assigned can be Sr. Associate Official at $40/game as the 2nd Official.
