The In-Person session is a review of what was covered in the On Line class, so it is important to have watched all of the On Line material prior to taking the In Person class.  

Please send me an e-mail at bob@hutchisonroad.com as to which In Person session you plan to attend, so I can have a head count.  Also, use the same e-mail if you have any questions about the training or the process.

Thank you again, and enjoy your Referee Training!

A couple of additional notes:

1) We are no longer offering the U8 Official referee class. If you take this class, you will be a Regional Referee, eligible to referee any Region 57 soccer game.
2) If you are already a U8 Official from a prior year and you wish to upgrade to Regional Referee, you need to take this entire class. We no longer offer the “U8 to Regional Referee” class.

3) If you already took the Regional Referee class in a prior year, you do not need to take it again. Of course you are welcome to take the On-Line class and/or sit in on the In-Person class, but once you are a Certified Referee, you do not need to re-take the class. All you need to do is update your Volunteer Form.

4) Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
