SYL was founded by lacrosse players, people who are passionate about the game, and know the sport inside and out. As such, we emphasize not only the quality of our program but player safety, skills, sportsmanship, and fun. We are dedicated to passing on our knowledge of the sport and developing the lacrosse community in the Pacific Northwest.
We offer the following
US Lacrosse certified coaches. Every year we have our coaches trained in a US Lacrosse sponsored program.
US Lacrosse certified officials – the same applies to our officials; we are the only organization to provide US lacrosse training for our officials.
Our experienced coaching staff is made up of responsible adults.
We sponsor and help organize area high school teams so that our players can continue their lacrosse experience after graduating from our program. We are the only organization in the Spokane area to do so.
Neighborhood based teams.
Lacrosse is the fastest growing sport in the US. Are you interested? Come be a part of this phenomenal trend; you can give our League Administrator a call at 869-1697.
Officials for youth games are required to complete BOTH the NFHS Rules Test and the 25 question US Lacrosse Youth Rules test.
The NFHS Rules test is 100 questions, open book. Download a PDF copy of the test, then use the completed test to enter the answers online.
The tests are accessed through your Arbiter account. Login to your account at www.arbitersports.com . Use the SWITCH VIEWS pull-down menu (upper right) to go to the US Lacrosse CENTRAL HUB – typically the choice at the bottom of this menu. Then on the new left menu, click Men’s Officials, then Rules Exams.
If you don’t see a US Lacrosse CENTRAL HUB available to you – it’s because the email address you used for your Arbiter registration does not match the email you used for your US Lacrosse membership renewal, or because you are not registered as an official with US Lacrosse. THE ONLY WAY TO FIX EITHER OF THESE ISSUES IS TO CONTACT US LACROSSE BY PHONE. Contact Information: http://www.uslacrosse.org/about-us-lacrosse/contact-us.aspx Member Services is at ex. 102. It can take a few days for the US Lacrosse membership services fix to take effect.
Note to parents: Being a successful lacrosse official requires a high level of responsibility and maturity. If a high school student has the requisite level of responsibility and maturity, he or she should be able to complete the process on his or her own. Because of that, we ask that parents refrain from e-mailing or calling on behalf of their children. If your child has a question or issue please have him contact me.
