RRAs, RCs, Staffs,
Just a reminder that Feb 27th, 28th and March 1st is the Section Expo in Madison, Wisconsin. Along with Referee Instructor, Advanced Referee Instructor, there are multiple referee courses to continue learning the art of refereeing. Send as many volunteers as possible to get the best referees you can. Along with refereeing, I will be giving out this years Sportsman of the Year Award to a well-deserved player. Also, if you are interested in Advanced Referee Instructor, AND meet the requirements, you must contact me ASAP.
From Area F Referee Administrator, Sue Hansel, I got this:
We will be holding the Intermediate Referee training in Elmhurst on 3/21-3/22. The course is listed in eayso.org. If any of your referees will be attending, please have them sign up ASAP. You may contact me with any questions.
And from the National Office, I forward the following information:
Good morning everyone.
AYSO uses USSF referee resources as part of our training program for referees at all levels.
USSF is in the process of combining two of their manuals to have the information in one document.
The two manuals are the Advice to Referees and the Guide to Procedures.
There is no estimated date of completion so for now, please continue using and referencing both manuals as usual.
When the integration of the manuals is completed, we will let everyone know.
Please share this information with all of your instructors, assessors, mentors, referees, and other volunteers that help you with the referee program.
National Referee Program Administrator
