Summer Referee Course Aug 2nd-13th - FULL

Class is FULL as of 6/23/2010

SCYSL is offering an entry-level Grade 8 Referee Course this summer for people interested in becoming a referee.  Learning how to referee is a great way to really learn the game and also make some extra income on the weekends.

The class will meet at the Santa Clara Youth Soccer Park at 5409 Centennial Boulevard on the following dates:

  • Monday, August 2, 2010, 6:00 - 9:00 pm
  • Wednesday, August 4, 2010, 6:00 - 9:00 pm
  • Friday, August 6, 2010, 6:00 - 9:00 pm
  • Monday, August 9, 2010, 6:00 - 9:00 pm
  • Wednesday, August 11, 2010, 6:00 - 9:00 pm
  • Thursday, August 12, 2010, 6:00 - 9:00 pm (Field Clinic)
  • Friday, August 13, 2010, 6:00 - 9:00 pm

Three is a $25 charge for registration. Upon receipt of your check for $25 per student (payable to “SCYSL”), I will confirm your Registration. $25 covers the cost of the instructor, materials, etc.

This $25 will be refunded by the league to referees who successfully complete all required training (the course and all requirements), AND work five (5) games for SCYSL in the subsequent Fall Season. We especially encourage those soccer players who are under 18 years old to take the training with one of your parents and to officiate some games with them.

We will also need the following information for each attendee:

Name: __________________________________________
Address: __________________________________________
Your E-mail: _______________________________________
If under 18yo, Parent E-mail:________________________________
Phone: _H__________________Cell____________________
Sex: ___ Date of Birth: _______________
Place of Birth: _________________ Citizenship: ________

Some of the above information needs is required for your USSF registration and is kept confidential.

Before you take the exam, you will also need to bring a separate check for each attendee for $40 payable to “CNRA”. This covers your annual registration with the USSF. Please bring it to the first class session. If you do not pass the exam at the end of the class, this check will be returned to you.

Attendance will be taken at all sessions. In addition to the 6 classes that are set aside for USSF Instructor presentations of the Laws of the Game, we have scheduled a field clinic on August 12th. This session will focus on taking the theory from the class and applying it in the real world – out on the field. The goal of our new training format is to send new referees to their first league games as JOB READY as possible. In addition, there will be 1-2 dates where you will officiate in Mentor-supervised scrimmage games prior to the start of the Fall Season. Dates will be announced, and this is part of the required training.

Attendance at these additional sessions is mandatory for students wishing to officiate games for SCYSL, but students who do not intend to officiate with us do not have to attend the additional sessions. Because these sessions are required (for SCYSL referees), I must receive advance notice of any attendance scheduling conflicts as we have a firm policy of ’make-up’ sessions planned for such contingencies.
