Referee Clinic - Get Certified Now!
This is an opportunity to truly learn the rules of the game, see up and coming players and earn money while enjoying the game of lacrosse. To become a referee, you must be atleast 13 years old. Both men and women can be referees.
The following is a general guide of playing levels for a ref (typically, you must be 2 years older than the players):
Level 1 - Depending on age and ability, limit to U-16.
Level 2 - Depending on age and ability, may be assigned up to U19.
For more information on refereeing in BC, go to the BCLA website and look under the official’s link.
2014 Referee Clinics
Each year, referees must attend a one-day BCLA-sanctioned referee clinic, which the VKMLA will refund if referees officiate at least three games. Become a certified referee now!
Next clinics will be held at the Justice Insititute on Sunday Sept. 7th, Saturday Sept. 20th, and Saturday Sept 27th.

Volunteer Positions Open
The VKMLA receives gaming funds that are critical to the association's viability. In turn, we must supply volunteers to work short (3 hrs) shifts at Planet Bingo (2655 Main St, between 11th and 12th). Basically, volunteers just assist the "Planet Bingo" staff with simple duties. Our next dates for fulfilling our obligations are:
Wednesday September 3, 2014 - 6pm to 9pm
Saturday November 8, 2014 - 6pm to 9pm
Friday January 16, 2015 - 6pm to 9pm
Saturday March 21, 2015 - 6pm to 9pm
If you can volunteer for one or more of these assignments, please contact the Bingo Coordinator for more information.
The VKMLA would like to thank
the Vancouver Board of Parks and Recreation for its
Sports Hosting Grant Program and their support of lacrosse in Vancouver.
