Just in time for the start of the Fall season, VYS has scheduled a new referee class.
If you have ever been interested in refereeing and are at least entering the 7th grade, this is your chance to give it a try.
The class will consist of six evening sessions – September 3, 5, 6, 9, 10, and 13.
We begin at 6:30 and run until 9:30 each night at Thoreau’s Lecture Hall.
This is a “grade 8 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 2014 (at which time you will need to either recertify or upgrade).
This is a great opportunity to find out if you like refereeing .
1. Then you will first need to go to the State Referee web site – www.vadcsoccerref.com – and follow the directions to get registered with United States Soccer Federation as a grade 8 referee in the MDCVA (Metro DC/Virginia) north area (and pay $65.00 by credit card). (Please note your userid and password for future reference.)
2. Once you have registered at the USSF web site you will need to wait a day for the data to transfer to the State system.
3. And then you need to log onto the state registration system, and sign up for the new referee class in Vienna.
4. Finally, please send an e-mail to Diane Florkowski, the instructor, to verify that you have successfully completed the process.
If you have any questions, please contact Diane at email@example.com .
