The HKLA Mentorship Scheme for Officials is designed to strengthen the network amongst HKLA officials and to engage and retain new officials. We believe that this intentional support will provide a strong foundation for the development of young referees and umpires. It is our hope that this document will serve as a guide for mentors as they support new officials. This program and handbook are a part of HKLA’s continued efforts to grow the game of lacrosse in Hong Kong.
As an official, one of the most important aspects of preparing for a game is packing your bag. Use this handbook to ensure you know which items you will need before your first game as well as where to get them!
