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 will be receiving details regarding scheduling a class for parents associated with their clubs in the next few days.
