Referee Recertification Procedures

Referees needing to recertify for the 2015 year will need to follow these procedures (please note that if your first referee certification was awarded after July 1, 2014, you do NOT need to recertify)....
1.  Go to the following site to register and pay fees:    http://ussoccer.force.com/referee/  Please note, you will need to enter a unique email address when signing up.

2. Go to following link to view referee course modules:  http://www.ussoccer.com/referees/resource-center/online-training

Referee Class Changes

Beginning July 1, changes in referee courses were made.  To best serve GBYSL we will implement the following:

Grade 8 Class (8 hours total) will be used to train youth and adults who wish to work games as referees.  These classes will prepare referees as both a referee and assistant referee.  Upon completion, participants will be expected to work games for GBYSL. Cost for this class is $55.00.

Grade 9 Class (8 hours total) will be used for parents wishing to serve as a referee to fulfill the GBYSL Team Referee policy requiring each team to have two certified referees associated with a team.  This class will prepare parents to serve in the role of assistant referee should the need arise on a particular game day.  Upon completion of the class, participants will be able to fill in on a game when needed.  Cost for this class is $45.00

Individual clubs will host the Grade 9 classes.  Club presidents were sent  details in August of 2014 regarding scheduling a class for parents associated with their clubs in the next few days.
