@USLacrosse, is there a way to have a family membership and no receive 3 copies of the same magazine each month? I dont even need a membership discount, one copy per address will suffice.
I really wish that US Lacrosse Magazine would mention either in their pre season rankings or in a totally separate article, which Div 1 mens programs are fully funded with 12.6 scholarships & which programs are not fully funded, so most fans can see that it is not an equal playing field. As an example, Villanova is not fully funded and has one of the smallest rosters year in & year out, but Coach Corrado has no problem playing one of the toughest schedules every single season.
2020 Preseason Rankings and you don’t include the NAIA. Shame on you.

Dear Steve – Thank you for finally illuminating the problem of the lack of officials in lacrosse. This is a very real problem that will only get worse unless some solutions are provided. Unfortunately, instead of taking a leadership position and offering solutions to this growing problem that is affecting all sports, you’ve decided to point fingers and place the blame on different parties, including the officials themselves. I see this as a grave mistake. First, placing the blame on assignors is off target to the larger issue. Yes, assignors get paid, but that’s only part of the story. Many of these same assignors work the equivalent of a 40-hour a week job for 2-3 months of the year. Games, and/or their locations, can be changed just hours before a contest and they need to be able to make those changes. Assigners need to be compensated fairly for their time. Blaming assignors is akin to coaches blaming officials for a double-digit loss. Second, off season tournaments are a large issue. Many officials work these tournaments out of loyalty to their organizations and the sport of lacrosse as some of them can require upwards of 100 officials, or more. And because it is the summer, many officials are doing what most people are doing during that time – taking time off from work and going on vacation. Combine this with the understanding that many officials don’t want to drive 100 miles to a tournament and forgo spending time with their families to make $180 a day, or less, and you may have officials who are tired by the end of the day because they have worked 7 or more games. Finally, you discuss the need for consistency in tournament rules, legitimizing the angry parents and coaches who usually do not read the 1-page emails concerning any rule changes. As a lacrosse official for many years, I’ve never seen a tournament promote, or even encourage, dangerous play. Of all the problems you mentioned, this is the easiest one for US Lacrosse to correct. If a tournament doesn’t operate by US Lacrosse youth rules and eligibility requirements, players, officials, and coaches are not eligible for insurance coverage through US Lacrosse. Period. USA Hockey has had the policy in place for years. While engaging stakeholders and exposing the factors of the declining number of officials is a great start. But we are talking about US Lacrosse, the supposed 800-lb gorilla in the room. We expect you to be as ahead of the curve and offer solutions instead of reacting to some commentary about a problem that has been growing over the last few years. Your politically correct spin on this issue makes me wonder if you are sincere in resolving this crisis. Respectfully submitted. - Ronald Kramer - Veteran Sports Official, Lacrosse, Hockey
