WE NEED YOUR HELP! URGENT REQUEST FOR VOLUNTEERS.
We are in critical need of referees for the remainder of the season in our U12-U19 divisions, and for our Sunday select programs for U10 and U12 players.
Currently, we do not have enough referees to cover our games despite asking for volunteers. Many of our referees are also coaches, and have a lot on their plates already which makes it difficult for them to also be responsible for refereeing games. We have had to have teams forfeit games because we do not have qualified referees for the games that need them.
Next Sunday, 10/11 at 9:30am we will be having an introductory "regional referee" course at Oddstad field. This training will allow us to cover a larger portion of the games where we require referees.
In order to reduce the number of forfeits and to help our kids enjoy the games at the upper levels, we are asking that every coach take the training and that each U12-U19 (and any tournament teams) team have at least 1 additional trained referee. We are asking that as many parents as possible please join us so that when we roll out our new referee system next year, there will be more volunteers prepared and comfortable with the game. Now is the time to volunteer - we can help you get more comfortable with refereeing through mentoring and starting you in the lower divisions, but you need to take the first step. Here it is.
BASIC REFEREE FIELD COMPANION TRAINING will be on October 11th, Oddstad Field
930am to 12:30pm (3 hours)
To be clear, this session will not be mandatory for this season for coaches below the U10 division. HOWEVER if you would like to get ahead of the requirements for next year, now would be a better time to do it. We will have other sessions next year and who knows where you will be or what your schedule will look like.
To take the Sunday October 11th course:
Anyone 12 years or older who has satisfied the three steps above is welcome!
Thank you very much for helping out the kids!
