Thanks for a great season!  See you in the spring.

Training for new referees

If you are a new referee, please consider training with an experienced referee mentor for two referee slots as a center referee on U9/10's and two slots as an assistant referee (AR) on U11/12's or U13/14's.  Look for "training referee" or "training AR" slots on the unassigned games.  After that you are encouraged to request games as referee or AR alone.  If you feel another training session is needed, please contact Mary Gene.
