The Tennessee Chapter of US Lacrosse demonstrated its commitment to addressing the nation-wide shortage of officials on a local level by awarding the ETWLOA a financial grant to cover costs associated with US Lacrosse-certified trainers instructing and observing local officials. The chapter also supported grant applications in West Tennessee and Middle Tennessee from those officials associations, according to chapter president Josh Scouten. Christa Hill’s father, Drew,


serves as the trainer for the Knoxville area. He’s a converted basketball official from the Northern Virginia area that ventured into women’s lacrosse officiating to help address “the gaping lack of quality officials as the growth of the game continues to outpace the supply of officials,” he said.


Drew Hill edits a newsletter to ETWLOA officials to help members stay current on rules, mechanics and procedures. Regular communications help officials stay in line with NFHS and US Lacrosse rules of play.

The family has moved a few times for work considerations, but lacrosse has remained a bond. Drew’s father, Robert, played at Navy, and daughter Emma got into the sport when the family lived in Maryland. Emma, who’ll graduate from Farragut a year early and play alongside Christa at Lee next fall, initially recruited her older sister to play.


Though playing may represent the end of the bond.


“She makes fun of me,” Christa Hill said of Emma’s opinion on the former’s role as an official. Christa Hill, who officiates mainly middle school games, plans to continue officiating while in college. “It’s one of the best jobs I could’ve gotten,” Hill said. “It doesn’t feel that much like a job. I’m involved in the sport I love. I’m watching players get better, and I’m helping the sport grow. Getting paid is just an extra bonus for me” No word on whether Christa will make available some of her officiating income to Emma to help with college expenses next year. USL
