The US Lacrosse Sportsmanship Card Program is to be used for every youth game from 9/10 down to U9. Referees are instructed not to start the game until there is a Sideline Manager (a non-coach adult on the fan sideline) from each team playing. All details and materials for the program can be found here.
All coaches are required to complete evaluations of the officials for each game that they play. This is an important tool to improve officiating in Minnesota. The more the lacrosse community puts into evaluating officials, the quicker the officials will improve. The system has scale ratings on several topics, but individualized constructive criticism is best. Also, give praise where it is due. It's a hard job and a nice word goes a long way.
