Reminder Boys Scouts Tomorrow

This a reminder:
The Boy Scouts of America will be having their 100th Anniversary Encampment at Water Works Park tomorrow. The even is expected to draw over 5,000 people and will last all day.
There will be a lacrosse clinic and demonstration as part of the event. The lacrosse portion will be held on the large field on the western side of the park, behind the Isaac Walton League building. Numerous volunteers have contacted John Yasenko, a local laxer and officer with the Boy Scouts.
Morning volunteers should report to John by 8:30 am. John should have made arrangements with the afternoon volunteers. Jim Burk is helping John coordinate the Valley players. If you have any questions, please contact John Yasenko or Jim Burk.

    I feel like I was there, Jim! Awesome to see this growth, and evident parity, in LA.

    The officiating issue is a very interesting one, and regardless of this games’ reffing, a lack of officials, both in quality and quantity, is an issue.

    Even if the volunteers reffing the games knew lacrosse like the back of their hand, it can still be hard for ONE person to effectively officiate a HS lacrosse game. Seasoned guys like Bob Boniello could do it with ease, but there are few refs, especially in newer areas, of THAT high quality.

    How can we attract more refs to lacrosse? And how can we ensure they know the game? Could this be the biggest obstacle to real lacrosse growth?
