Who says that only coaches should talk to refs. How about holding officials more accountable. The majority of officiating at the youth level is pathetic. Why can't lacrosse find better referees, who know the game, who are licensed (like soccer), who will enforce the rules fairly and attemtp to ensure player safety?
Lacrosse as come very far with Referees and are on pace to license all refs. Many already are and they are the ones that have a rookie with them in most games. the growth of the game is happening at high rates and expecting HIGH LEVEL refs at your sons 6 th grade game is a bit ridiculous. The RULE BOOK also clearly states that the COACHES are the only ones that can talk to refs . There is sideline rules just like game rules. Clearly written in in English for all Dads and Moms to see.
