Coach Requirements and Resources

Coaches Training Requirements and Modules

Coach Online Registration: 

  • All coaches must complete an online registration form for each league. The form serves as a waiver, liability release, code of conduct agreement, and verifies US Lacrosse membership.
  • All coaches must have a valid US Lacrosse membership throughout the duration of the league.

Coach Eligibility:

  • An adult (18 years or older) must be present on the sideline for liability purposes. 
  • All coaches must complete the GNLL Coach Training which includes state-mandated concussion training, GNLL policies and procedures, rule knowledge, rule changes for 2020, conduct, and safety.
    • New to 2020- Coaches who have completed the GNLL General Coach Training and GNLL Youth Indoor/"Box" Lacrosse Module will only need to retake them every 2 years. Coaches who completed them in 2019 have been carried over into the 2020 gradebook and will not need to complete it again until 2021.

    • The course covers coaches for the entire 2020 calendar year (Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter). Box coaches will have a short additional component covering them for box games. 
    • The videos and quizzes take roughly 1.5 to 4.0 hours to complete, depending on your rules knowledge and coaching experience.
