About this Course
Why recertification?
The quality of officials is one of our main focus points as an
organization. A high quality of officials ensures a high standard of
competition.
With regular changes to rules and mechanics, yearly recertification
ensures officals are up to date on their craft and there is a quality
ensurance across the board.
Officials that do not succesfully recertify will need to retake the basic
officiating course.

What’s New?
Major Change: Mechanics
There are no official rule changes for the 2022-2023 season. All rules
that were previously in place still apply, no new rules were added.
However, there is a major change in how officials conduct a face off
and this affects all referee mechanics.
In short: the face off is now overseen by two officials. Because of that
change, the way in which the officals move after a face off and the
rotation of officials after a goal are also affected. More will be
explained in details in the section ‘Major Change: Mechanics’.
The way players play the game is not affected, the way officials
officiate a game is.

face offs and after goals.
• There is no change in settled play or transition mechanics.
• CBO positioning does not change.
• In this section, the changes in face off and after goal mechanics
will be discussed.

Major Change: Mechanics
New face off mechanics
It is important to note that even though the way the face off is conducted
by the officals changes, there are no changes for players. They still need to
set up in the same manner (WL rule 34), in short:
• Sticks parallel to the centre line.
• Everything left of the head / plastic. Nothing in the neutral zone.
• Nothing touching the ball or centre line.
• Both gloves hands wrapped around the sticks and on the ground.
• Still ‘down’, ‘set’ followed by a whistle.

New face off mechanics
• Postioning before the face off:
• One official oversees the wing line on the bench side.
• Is positioned at the imaginary intersection of the
extended wing line and restraining line.
• Two other officials conduct the face off at centre field.
• They are positioned on either side of the face off spot.
• One official places the ball on the centre line.
• Both officials set one foot about 10 centimeters next to
each side of the ball, on the centre line.
• The next slide will have a simplified illustration of this.

Major Change: Mechanics
New face off mechanics
• Positioning during face off:
• The official that brought the ball (former Lead official after a
goal) will put down the ball and take a position closer to the
single side of the field. The other official wil take the position
closer to the bench side of the field.
• The players will be told to go down at the same time.
• Once the players are correctly set up, the bench side official
will backpeddle out in a 45 degree angle, keeping an eye on
the far wing (single side) while doing so.
• The single side official will instruct players to not move by
saying ‘set’, will also move backwards and then blow his
whistle.

• With the new mechanic, it is no longer needed for the single
side official to temporarily cover for a lead officals stuck
overseeing the face off.
• After the face off, officials will be in settled play positions, which
have not changed from previous seasons.

New rotation after a goal
• After goal (and officials’ goal procedure) Lead picks up the ball.
• Single moves to the center of the field.
• When Lead is picking up the ball, Single watches the players.
• Trail oversees the entire situation. Up until this point, it is the
same as before.
• New: when Lead has the ball, Lead will take the ball to centre field
and conduct the face off.
• Since in the new face off mechanic two officials oversee the face
off, the rotation is different depending of what side of the field is
scored on. This is because the officials that is not involved in the
face off will always be in the same spot on the bench side.

Points of Emphasis
Comments collected about the 2021-2022 season have pointed out a
couple of areas where NLB officals as a whole can improve most.
This of course does not mean that these are the only important rules
and situations. As always, as officials, we are watching for everything
at all times. These are merely reminders and a way to get all NLB
officials on the same page on these topics.
Never forget, the main focus of officals should always be safety, fair
play and game flow.

Differentiating Between Fouls
Personal fouls are not always one minute fouls.
There should be a difference between a accidental, clumsy slash on
the shoulder and a vicious slash on the back.
So how can you judge which penalty is worth more than one minute?

Differentiating Between Fouls
There are many rules of thumb to differentiate between fouls. These
are all guidelines. As always, every situation needs to be judged in
real time in the context of a game.
As a general rule, make sure that during a game the same category of
fouls gets the same penalty. If accidental slashez fall into the one
minute category, a vicious slash on the back cannot fall into the same
category and must be a two or three minute penalty.

Differentiating Between Fouls
A general guideline is given by World Lacrosse in the manual section
9.2.1 ‘Penalty Application’, below is a summary:
• One minute personal foul:
• Anything that happens with reasonable force in the regular
occurrence of the game in the scrimmage area. Basically,
these are the events that happen while players are making
efforts to play the game, but accidents happen.

Differentiating Between Fouls
• Two minute personal foul:
• A foul that occurs with reasonable force but occurs away
from the scrimmage area.
• A foul that occurs in the regular course of play that has
excessive force.
• Three minute personal foul:
• A foul that is both excessive and away from the scrimmage
area.
• A foul that is extremely excessive with apparent malice.
• A foul that severely endangers a player’s safety.
• If deserved, the official should consider expulsion of the
player from the game.

Differentiating Between Fouls
Quick Restarts (after fouls)
• The ball is restarted in the same relative position as where the ball
was when the whistle to stop play was blown .
• All restarts need to be at least 20 yards (18.2 m) away from goal.
• Look for the (extended) wingline and restraining line.
• This goes for restarts behind the goal as well.
• All restarts need to be at least 5 yards (4.6 m) away from the
substitution area.
• Restarts need to be as quick a possible, but safe for all involved.

Quick Restarts
• No player may be within 5 yards (4.6 m) of the ball carrier at the
time of the restart.
• If a player is within 5 yards at the time of restart the player is
not allowed to defend the ball until he first reaches a distance
of 5 yards from the ball (carrier).
• Violation of this rule: illegal procedure
• Slow whistle / flag since the offended team is in
possession.
• 30 seconds time served penalty.
• Restarts should always be fair and safe; quick but not hasty.

Offside
• A team can have a maximum of 6 players on the offensive half and
a maximum of 7 players on the defensive half.
• A player whose body (not including the stick) touches on or across
the center line is considered to have entered that half of the field.
It is important to always count players crossing the centre line
(counting foward). This way, an offside can be called immediately and
this make sure it is more clear to all involved.

• When a ball or ball carrier returns to the defensive half through
actions of the offensive team:
• Play on when the other team is in a position to pick up the
ball
• Whistle, signal over and back and quick restart when there is
no chance for the other team to pick up the ball quickly
• Signal: move lower arm away and then towards body
• Being legally body checked across the midline is over and back

Over and Back
• When a team enters the attack goal area (crosses the offensive
restraining line) the single side referee will signal:
• Arm straight up and then point down to the attack goal area.
• This is to let teams and officials know that over and back rule
will be applied on a ball going back across the midline.
• When a ball or ball carrier is moving close to the midline, SR will
signal to assist the trail referee:
• “Yes, yes, yes!” in case of over and back rule in effect.
• “No, no, no!” in case of over and back rule not in effect.

  • 2. Men’s Lacrosse 2022-2023 Recertification INTRODUCTION presentation Introduction Frequently Asked Questions About this Course Why recertification? The quality of officials is one of our main focus points as an organization. A high quality of officials ensures a high standard of competition. With regular changes to rules and mechanics, yearly recertification ensures officals are up to date on their craft and there is a quality ensurance across the board. Officials that do not succesfully recertify will need to retake the basic officiating course.

  • 8. Men’s Lacrosse 2022-2023 Recertification CHANGES presentation What’s New? Major Change: Mechanics There are no official rule changes for the 2022-2023 season. All rules that were previously in place still apply, no new rules were added. However, there is a major change in how officials conduct a face off and this affects all referee mechanics. In short: the face off is now overseen by two officials. Because of that change, the way in which the officals move after a face off and the rotation of officials after a goal are also affected. More will be explained in details in the section ‘Major Change: Mechanics’. The way players play the game is not affected, the way officials officiate a game is.

  • 10. Men’s Lacrosse 2022-2023 Recertification CHANGES presentation What’s New? Major Change: Mechanics Major change: mechanics This season there is a major change in officials’ mechanics for the face offs and after goals. • There is no change in settled play or transition mechanics. • CBO positioning does not change. • In this section, the changes in face off and after goal mechanics will be discussed.
  • 11. Men’s Lacrosse 2022-2023 Recertification CHANGES presentation What’s New? Major Change: Mechanics New face off mechanics It is important to note that even though the way the face off is conducted by the officals changes, there are no changes for players. They still need to set up in the same manner (WL rule 34), in short: • Sticks parallel to the centre line. • Everything left of the head / plastic. Nothing in the neutral zone. • Nothing touching the ball or centre line. • Both gloves hands wrapped around the sticks and on the ground. • Still ‘down’, ‘set’ followed by a whistle.
  • 12. Men’s Lacrosse 2022-2023 Recertification CHANGES presentation What’s New? Major Change: Mechanics New face off mechanics • Postioning before the face off: • One official oversees the wing line on the bench side. • Is positioned at the imaginary intersection of the extended wing line and restraining line. • Two other officials conduct the face off at centre field. • They are positioned on either side of the face off spot. • One official places the ball on the centre line. • Both officials set one foot about 10 centimeters next to each side of the ball, on the centre line. • The next slide will have a simplified illustration of this.

  • 14. Men’s Lacrosse 2022-2023 Recertification CHANGES presentation What’s New? Major Change: Mechanics New face off mechanics • Positioning during face off: • The official that brought the ball (former Lead official after a goal) will put down the ball and take a position closer to the single side of the field. The other official wil take the position closer to the bench side of the field. • The players will be told to go down at the same time. • Once the players are correctly set up, the bench side official will backpeddle out in a 45 degree angle, keeping an eye on the far wing (single side) while doing so. • The single side official will instruct players to not move by saying ‘set’, will also move backwards and then blow his whistle.

  • 16. Men’s Lacrosse 2022-2023 Recertification CHANGES presentation What’s New? Major Change: Mechanics New face off mechanics • Positioning after face off: • Depening on which team wins the face off, play will move to one of the goals. • The next slides depict the movement of officials in each scenario. • With the new mechanic, it is no longer needed for the single side official to temporarily cover for a lead officals stuck overseeing the face off. • After the face off, officials will be in settled play positions, which have not changed from previous seasons.

  • 18. Men’s Lacrosse 2022-2023 Recertification CHANGES presentation What’s New? Major Change: Mechanics Face off (play going to left goal)
  • 19. Men’s Lacrosse 2022-2023 Recertification CHANGES presentation What’s New? Major Change: Mechanics New rotation after a goal • After goal (and officials’ goal procedure) Lead picks up the ball. • Single moves to the center of the field. • When Lead is picking up the ball, Single watches the players. • Trail oversees the entire situation. Up until this point, it is the same as before. • New: when Lead has the ball, Lead will take the ball to centre field and conduct the face off. • Since in the new face off mechanic two officials oversee the face off, the rotation is different depending of what side of the field is scored on. This is because the officials that is not involved in the face off will always be in the same spot on the bench side.

Men’s Lacrosse 2022-2023 Recertification Differentiating Between Fouls POINTS OF EMPHASIS video Quick Restarts Offside Over and Back Goalie Interference Points of Emphasis Comments collected about the 2021-2022 season have pointed out a couple of areas where NLB officals as a whole can improve most. This of course does not mean that these are the only important rules and situations. As always, as officials, we are watching for everything at all times. These are merely reminders and a way to get all NLB officials on the same page on these topics. Never forget, the main focus of officals should always be safety, fair play and game flow.
  • 26. Men’s Lacrosse 2022-2023 Recertification Differentiating Between Fouls POINTS OF EMPHASIS video Quick Restarts Offside Over and Back Goalie Interference Differentiating Between Fouls Personal fouls are not always one minute fouls. There should be a difference between a accidental, clumsy slash on the shoulder and a vicious slash on the back. So how can you judge which penalty is worth more than one minute?
  • 27. Men’s Lacrosse 2022-2023 Recertification Differentiating Between Fouls POINTS OF EMPHASIS video Quick Restarts Offside Over and Back Goalie Interference Differentiating Between Fouls There are many rules of thumb to differentiate between fouls. These are all guidelines. As always, every situation needs to be judged in real time in the context of a game. As a general rule, make sure that during a game the same category of fouls gets the same penalty. If accidental slashez fall into the one minute category, a vicious slash on the back cannot fall into the same category and must be a two or three minute penalty.
  • 28. Men’s Lacrosse 2022-2023 Recertification Differentiating Between Fouls POINTS OF EMPHASIS video Quick Restarts Offside Over and Back Goalie Interference Differentiating Between Fouls A general guideline is given by World Lacrosse in the manual section 9.2.1 ‘Penalty Application’, below is a summary: • One minute personal foul: • Anything that happens with reasonable force in the regular occurrence of the game in the scrimmage area. Basically, these are the events that happen while players are making efforts to play the game, but accidents happen.
  • 29. Men’s Lacrosse 2022-2023 Recertification Differentiating Between Fouls POINTS OF EMPHASIS video Quick Restarts Offside Over and Back Goalie Interference Differentiating Between Fouls • Two minute personal foul: • A foul that occurs with reasonable force but occurs away from the scrimmage area. • A foul that occurs in the regular course of play that has excessive force. • Three minute personal foul: • A foul that is both excessive and away from the scrimmage area. • A foul that is extremely excessive with apparent malice. • A foul that severely endangers a player’s safety. • If deserved, the official should consider expulsion of the player from the game.
  • 30. Men’s Lacrosse 2022-2023 Recertification Differentiating Between Fouls Quick Restarts (after fouls) • The ball is restarted in the same relative position as where the ball was when the whistle to stop play was blown . • All restarts need to be at least 20 yards (18.2 m) away from goal. • Look for the (extended) wingline and restraining line. • This goes for restarts behind the goal as well. • All restarts need to be at least 5 yards (4.6 m) away from the substitution area. • Restarts need to be as quick a possible, but safe for all involved. POINTS OF EMPHASIS video Quick Restarts Offside Over and Back Goalie Interference
  • 31. Men’s Lacrosse 2022-2023 Recertification Differentiating Between Fouls Quick Restarts • No player may be within 5 yards (4.6 m) of the ball carrier at the time of the restart. • If a player is within 5 yards at the time of restart the player is not allowed to defend the ball until he first reaches a distance of 5 yards from the ball (carrier). • Violation of this rule: illegal procedure • Slow whistle / flag since the offended team is in possession. • 30 seconds time served penalty. • Restarts should always be fair and safe; quick but not hasty. POINTS OF EMPHASIS video Quick Restarts Offside Over and Back Goalie Interference
  • 32. Men’s Lacrosse 2022-2023 Recertification Differentiating Between Fouls Offside • A team can have a maximum of 6 players on the offensive half and a maximum of 7 players on the defensive half. • A player whose body (not including the stick) touches on or across the center line is considered to have entered that half of the field. It is important to always count players crossing the centre line (counting foward). This way, an offside can be called immediately and this make sure it is more clear to all involved. POINTS OF EMPHASIS video Quick Restarts Offside Over and Back Goalie Interference
  • 33. Men’s Lacrosse 2022-2023 Recertification Differentiating Between Fouls Over and Back • When a ball or ball carrier returns to the defensive half through actions of the offensive team: • Play on when the other team is in a position to pick up the ball • Whistle, signal over and back and quick restart when there is no chance for the other team to pick up the ball quickly • Signal: move lower arm away and then towards body • Being legally body checked across the midline is over and back POINTS OF EMPHASIS video Quick Restarts Offside Over and Back Goalie Interference
  • 34. Men’s Lacrosse 2022-2023 Recertification Differentiating Between Fouls Over and Back • When a team enters the attack goal area (crosses the offensive restraining line) the single side referee will signal: • Arm straight up and then point down to the attack goal area. • This is to let teams and officials know that over and back rule will be applied on a ball going back across the midline. • When a ball or ball carrier is moving close to the midline, SR will signal to assist the trail referee: • “Yes, yes, yes!” in case of over and back rule in effect. • “No, no, no!” in case of over and back rule not in effect. POINTS OF EMPHASIS video Quick Restarts Offside Over and Back Goalie Interference
  • 35. Men’s Lacrosse 2022-2023 Recertification Differentiating Between Fouls Goalie Interference • The goalie has special protection: • May not be body checked when in contact with the crease. • Called as illegal bodycheck (personal). • May not be stick checked when in possession and in contact with the crease. • Called as interference (technical). • Empty stick outside the crease area may be checked. • A goalie not in contact with the crease no longer has any special protection.
