LAX IQ

Pope Jr. Greyhound Lacrosse is fortunate to have Ryan Rowe in our program as a parent of 2 players and the Boys Commissioner. Ryan has been a boys lacrosse referee for 17 years. During that time, he has officiated every level of lacrosse from U9 through NCAA Division 1.  

Ryan has offered to provide our program with Lax IQ posts throughout the season to assist veteran and new families with increasing their knowledge of the game and some of the rules/calls you will hear during games. We hope you find this information helpful, and if you have anything in particular that you want explained, please email us at info@greyhoundlax.com.
