DLRA Accredited Officials

Become a DLRA official



All new officials start off as a DLRA Trainee Official which requires them to work under direct supervision. Trainees are teamed with experienced officials and learn how to do most things on the job.  As officials gain more experience they are given the opportunity to upgrade to a DLRA General Official. A DLRA General Official is the minimum level to enable the official to branch out into other areas and disciplines of officiating.



Once you’ve decided which categories of officiating you would like to attempt first, there are several options you may take. The best way of getting involved is to become a member of the DLRA or start attending General Meetings in your area.

It is then up to you to contact the DLRA and make inquiries regarding the possibility of officiating at DLRA events.

You can contact the DLRA office or the Chief official of the category you are interested in. All details are on the Contact Us page.
