Referee training this year will be on August the 2nd, 4th, and 5th. Layout consists of the below:
August 2nd and 4th: 6-9 and the Springboro Municipal Office Board Room (the new police station near the Springboro Library). This will be a lecture format to go over the laws of soccer and I will try to make it as interactive and informative as possible. All new referees will be required to attend, if you have issues with the times or dates let me know and we can try to work something out.
August 5th: 9-12 at Kesling Park (where the SAY Minors Play in the Fall). This will be about an hour to discuss how to conduct yourself on the pitch to make it more conformable their first time out. This will be followed by a 100Q exam in regards to the presentation that I give during the week, closed book. FOR RETURNING REFS, you will only need to be at this session but can attend the lectures if you feel inclined to do so. You can take the test either open book with a group or closed book to try for Certification if you do not have it. If you go this route, you must score a 90 or higher to get your Certified patch.
Feel free to reach out and ask any questions, now that soccer season is about to get underway I will be responding to messages within a day or two. Advise that the newest season will begin in mid August.
Kind Regards, and enjoy the rest of your summer!
