13.01 Bench Personnel are considered Coaches and Trainers.

13.02 In all games (including regular league, playoffs, exhibition, tournaments), teams are required to have all bench personnel who meet the LC Minimum Standards. 13.03 All Female-only teams must have one registered female bench personnel registered to the team in RAMP and on the bench as per the ALA Registration System and correlating to the game sheet.

13.04 Bench personnel are determined as per ALA Registration System for each team. Only coaches with required qualifications and certified trainers are permitted on the bench. To be eligible to coach, all coaches must meet the requirements of the LC Minimum Standards as applicable to each discipline of lacrosse.

13.05 Trainers must have the appropriate certification.

Appropriate certification is defined as one of the following:

  • Any St. John Ambulance Emergency First Aid course of 8 hours (or more) or equivalent
  • Canadian Red Cross Standard First Aid & First Responder
  • Canadian Red Cross Sport First Responder and Sport Aid course
  • Hockey Canada Safety Program (HCSP)

From the above, please be clear CPR (as a stand-alone certification) is not an equivalency.
