VYS announces the scheduling of two new referee classes.
If you have ever been interested in refereeing and are at least in the 7th grade, this is your chance to give it a try. Each class will consist of three sessions – one on the field and two in the classroom. The first day will be on Field #3 at Oakton High School on Sutton Road in Vienna from 1-3. Please dress appropriately for the weather. For the next two sessions, we will be in classroom 190 at Oakton High School. We will begin at 6:30 and run until 9:30 each night. You must also complete the online training modules prior to the first class. This is a “grade 8 combo class” which has nothing to do with school grades and everything to do with referee grades. If you pass you will be eligible to referee or assistant referee recreational VYS games until December 2017 (at which time you will need to either recertify or upgrade). This is a great opportunity to find out if you like refereeing.
The dates for the classes are as follows:
Class #1 – February 25, 27 and March 2
Class #2 – March 11, 14 and 16
Interested? Then you will need to go register by following the instructions on the State Referee web site – www.vadcsoccerref.com (and pay the registration fee by credit card) for the “North – New Grade 8 Combo” class in Vienna. (Please note your userid and password for future reference.) Also, please use an e-mail address that you check regularly since the instructor will be sending out notices, study materials and other information starting about a month before class begins.
