Upper Midwest Lacrosse Officials Association

Upper Midwest Lacrosse Officials

8U, 10U, 12U, 14U, and GNLL 9/10 Evaluations

For GNLL and YLM games, in order to evaluate officials after each game your association must have a generic email address set up for your association in Arbiter. This is done as follows:


  1. Each organization should create a single e-mail address, like springfieldyouthlax@gmail.com, that can be added to Arbiter and made a contact for all of your teams. At this point, all GNLL teams have an @greatnorthernlacrosse.com email address set up for this purpose.
  2. Contact the league assigner (use the "contact us" link on this web page if you aren't sure who to contact) with the e-mail address and a list of all teams that should be associated with that e-mail address (GNLL and/or YLM).
  3. Set up the e-mail account to forward to everyone in your group who needs Arbiter access. This is done on your end and not through Arbiter; if you are using Gmail, see http://support.google.com/mail/answer/10957?hl=en. This allows you to manage who gets the e-mail notifications and who can log into Arbiter to see schedules and do evaluations.
  4. In some cases, you may need to contact the assigner to enable your association do complete evaluations.


Even if you do not have your association set up in Arbiter:

  • You must contact the assigner (Harold Buck and/or Matt Dempsey) if an official is late (not on the field at least 20 minutes prior to the scheduled start time), does not show up, or is out of uniform; you can use the "contact" link on the sidebar of this page to reach both of them at once.
  • If there are other problems beyond a simple evaluation, you must fill out a YLM Incident Report for YLM games or contact Harold Buck for GNLL games.
