The Keeper of the Game Program

As we prepare for the Season, Please review the following.

Every team must provide a Timekeeper (stopwatch is required) or Scorekeeper (bring a backup pen) for their game. Each team must provide a Ballperson (and 4 balls) on the endline

What may not be understood about these responsibilities is that they are off field officials.

This means that the volunteers should not be coaching on the benchside or endlines, they should not be cheering loudly or questioning referee calls. For this small timeframe, you are an off field official and should be working in partnership with the on field officials.

Coaches can help the off field officials by insuring that the coaches box is always clear of their players. The players should not be lining the sidelines, they should be six yards from the field of play, and they should not be in the change area (unless changing or serving a penalty) or approaching the scorekeeper asking what the score is... The off field officials are required to have an unobstructed and uninterrupted view of the field of play.

The respect for the game should never be comprised by the players, coaches, officials or parents. Everyone is responsible to ensure this stays true in Field Lacrosse

Why not become an official, referee and umpire? How do I become an official? Where are the courses? When are the courses being held?  Please visit the OLRA website for all your inquiries.

The Jamieson Kuhlmann Memorial Field Lacrosse Tournament

The Jammer Classic

Always seek and find something in life you truly enjoy.
Muster together the strength, wisdom, and determination to be good at it and take it to a level where it simply makes you feel good.
Put yourself in a position so that you can touch and influence others, and in return you will be touched and influenced by them. 

If you can bring about what Jamieson brought to others and in turn what was brought to him, then we will all be the better for it.
Remember to always pass the ball to everyone around you. Not just to those that will catch it and put it into the net, but also to those that might fumble it, for they will catch it in their hearts and remember you always.
May all of those who play in the Jammer Classic draw inspiration from a great young man who was called upon to play his game elsewhere.
His legacy will remain with us forever.
