Here’s the information regarding the grade 8 clinic for NEW referees (you haven’t been a referee before or have not recertified in the last 2 years). This course is scheduled for Tuesday February 19th and Thursday February 21st (5:30 to 8:30) and Saturday, February 23rd (9:00 to 4:00) in Room 6, Washington Elementary School.
To obtain this certification you must complete all of the following:
1) Register for the course at montanaref.org (see below)
2) a mandatory on-line self study course prior to the clinic is available here: Laws of the Game (you can do part & then come back later to complete…)
3) attend the classroom instruction. There is a written exam.
4) attend an outdoor session (right after the classroom stuff on Saturday) for flag work and other hands-on training, probably outside in the school yard).
The registration fee is $50. $40 for USSF registration and $10 for materials and instructor costs. Please bring your payment with you to the classroom. Fees will be collected before the start of the session. Make your checks payable to LYSA.
PLEASE NOTE: This grade 8 certification allows you to referee competitive games in the spring and recreational games this fall. LYSA will reimburse you $40 once you have passed the course and worked 4 games as a referee.
*** Please register as soon as possible. This will help us plan the course and obtain sufficient course materials for the class.
