Referee Clinic (Entry Level)
The Valley Referee Association will host an Entry Level Referee Clinic at our Meeting Hall on July 20 and 21, 2013. Click here to register, using CalSouth's registration form.
Anyone unable to attend our clinic may attend any other clinic. Checkout the following website link for more information. CalSouth.
These clinics are your opportunity to become a referee and learn how to apply the Laws to the "Beautiful Game" Contact Mark Hager for more information.
The Grade 8 re-cert clinic will be scheduled soon and everyone will need to sign up online at the CalSouth website. Look under "re-cert". The class will max out at 100 due to room limitations.
This is mandatory for Referees 18 and older if you wish to officiate any games at U19 and below. This must be completed. Check your status on the CalSouth website. If the column on the far right says "APPROVED" then your Life Scan is verified. If blank you will need to contact Sevada for further information.
For Referees wishing to upgrade. Contact Andy Reszczynski to schedule the required level games as early in the Coast Soccer Season as possible. Once you are scheduled you need to contact Lee Popejoy to schedule an assessor. At this time you will be required to pay the appropriate fees and your assessment will be set. You will need to be in contact with your assigned Assistants and verify that they are in possession of their current "Registration Card".
