Referee Notes 2017-18

WE NEED MORE REFEREES: I am addressing an ongoing need for the soccer club. That need is for qualified referees to administer your child's games. The current adult referees are not getting younger and the average young referee last 4-5 years until they graduate high school and move on to college (and most do not come back.) We (the club) are requesting individuals to make themselves available to become a certified referee. Classes are held starting in January through the end of March the minimum age requirement is 14. It has always been good to have younger individuals join the ranks, and we will continue to recruit them, but we are in serious need of adults. Understand, that the center refereee has to be at least two years older than the players. I have heard excuses, such as I do not know anything about soccer, and its a thankless job. If the club does not have enough age appropriate referees, the kids will not get to play.
