Running alongside the 2017 Rathbones Women’s Lacrosse World Cup is the World Lacrosse Festival, which brings teams of all age groups, genders and nationalities to Surrey Sports Park for ten tournaments spanning ten days.

We need a lot of umpiring and refereeing help, so sign yourself up for the whole week or just for 2 or 3 days. Whatever you can do, we would love to have you.

Not only will you have the chance to soak up the World Cup atmosphere, but it’s a fantastic opportunity to work with and learn from top level international officials from many different countries.

Compensation: £100/day, plus 2 festival t-shirts
