Hope all are enjoying the World Cup games so far. Summer time is here and most regions are at break time, if you region plays during the summer, drop me a note.
Again, anyone wanting to become a Referee Instructor and meets the criteria, sign up for the Intro to Instruction and Referee Instructor course on 8/2 being held in Malta Il. The sooner you get your name on, the better. Below are two messages from National, the first is letting you know anyone submitting an advancement may be waiting until after National Games, and the other giving congrats to new referees, including Alan Tribble from our own Section 6 who earned his National Referee Badge!
Also remember for Summer/fall, submit any players for the Section 6 Sportsmanship Award. Good Sportsmanship is Expected, Exceptional Sportsmanship is rewarded. Without further ado, the messages from National:
Hello my fellow administrators,
I have been tasked to assist with the national games both internally and in a week, physically in Riverside.
So effective immediately, I will process all upgrades that come to us in this manner: As I receive the paperwork, I will complete the upgrade for the volunteer in eAYSO, email him-her and the accompanying Area or Section staff member, a note stating received, processed with badge, letter and certificate in the mail. I will not be sending my usual congratulatory email to the candidates until after the Games.
I have no backlog of upgrades; all paperwork received for the past two weeks are complete in eAYSO and badges in the mail.
I will try to update eAYSO for a candidate next week as best I can but no promises after Wednesday June 25th – Wednesday July 9th.
I include Rick Roberts, the NG Referee Administrator and Art Hundiak, the referee zayso scheduler in addition to Jim Gregory, NRAC Chair, Dave Oram, NRAC Board Liaison and of course, Thomas Bobadilla, NRPA.
Rick and Art are included as a courtesy so they can respond to a volunteer who may claim a higher referee certification then their record may show in eAYSO = as of Wednesday 6/25 – they will be current so what shows in eAYSO is good.
Please help communicate to your Section, Area and Regional referee staff members.
Have fun if you, or fellow referees, are participating in the Games; remember, it really ought to be fun, fair, safe!!!
Congratulations and thank you for all that you do for AYSO, the kids and yourselves. I have updated your eAYSO record with your latest referee accomplishment that of referee, or instructor or assessor.
For the Referees: I have placed, in the mail (to your home or P.O.Box address as listed in eAYSO), your Intermediate, Advanced or National Referee Badge and Certificate.
In addition, please join Jim Gregory, Chair, National Referee Advisory Commission (NRAC) and Thomas Bobadilla, in congratulating Alan Tribble on his National Referee certification and Lee Aydolette on his National Referee Assessor certification.
Remember, there is always a little girl or boy in the stands that wants to be just like you, don’t disappoint them.
