Youth Lacrosse referees needed

April 12, 2017

Bend Park and Recreation District is looking for referees to officiate games for the 2017 Boys Lacrosse League.

“With 700 kids participating in the league this year, which is a new record for the growing sport, the need for referees to officiate games is as big as ever,” said Rich Ekman, sports program coordinator.

Potential applicants must enjoy working with youth and be able to create a positive, encouraging environment. Although prior referee experience is not required, all referees must have lacrosse knowledge, and pass a pre-employment drug screen and criminal background check.  Applicants must be at least 14 years of age.

Pay rate is $15 to $20 per game depending on grade level officiating.   Games are played at the Big Sky Sports Complex at 4:30 p.m., 5:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. Monday thru Friday, April 26 to June 2.    

Anyone interested must attend a mandatory meeting scheduled for Wednesday, April 19 at 7 p.m. at the Park and Recreation District Office, 799 SW Columbia St.
