1 :: Rates apply when the team, league, or tournament schedules sets of 2 or more games in a row at the same site, games starting every hour; higher rates apply to single games and if there are gaps between games. Note, new officials start out at $40 base rate for the first 20 games and then get a raise to $43 per game base rate.

2 :: Officials pay assigning fees directly to the assigner for each MSHSL game assigned ($5 / game for 12 stop, $3 / game for 12 running, $4 / game for 10 stop).

3 :: One-official rates for 12U and higher are in effect when one official misses a game or, in rare circumstances, when only a single official is available to work a game. Games are assigned two or three officials in almost all circumstances.

4 :: All MSHSL section playoff games pay an extra $5 / game (noted above). MSHSL State Tournament game fees TBD (assigning fees do apply to section games but do not apply to state tournament games).

5 :: Includes 3×15 running “box lacrosse” games.

6 :: A 2nd official for 8U-10U is optional. In some cases, at the assigner’s discretion, a lower rate may apply for a new official assigned as a 2nd official.

7 :: A 3rd official is standard for MSHSL Varsity and is available upon request for other games if there are enough officials available to provide a 3rd official.

8 :: Rates apply from mid-April through Memorial Day.

All fees listed in the table are per official. Assigning fees for non-MSHSL leagues and tournaments are covered in a separate document and are paid by the league or tournament.

Officials are independent contractors, and any contract for payment on games is between the official and the league, school, tournament director, or other body organizing the games and not between the official and the assigner. Assigners work with officials to try to make sure payments are processed correctly—and we currently know of no cases where officials have not been able to secure payment—but assigners are not responsible for paying officials.

MSHSL state tournament games use a Chief Bench Official, who is paid the same amount as the three on-field officials. Teams may request a CBO for other MSHSL varsity games, which will be provided subject to availability.

Scrimmage policies are available by emailing lacrosse@yourassignment.net. Scrimmages normally pay the same rate as a regular game at the same level of play and same time controls, although they may be prorated in some situations.

Note that all fees listed are standard rates and may be modified in some circumstances. If there are gaps between games in non-MSHSL leagues or tournaments longer than 15 minutes, officials’ wait is billed at $10 per official per 30 minutes or portion thereof. Non-standard game times such as 10-minute stop time will be pro-rated, but 12-minute running-time fees apply for all games scheduled in 1-hour time slots.
