The State Referee Committee is pleased to announce the return of the in-person weeknight continuing education clinics that were commonplace before the pandemic. These clinics will be voluntary, no pre-registration required and free of charge. Each clinic will consist of a pre-selected topic followed by open discussion regarding any topic or game scenario put forth by those in attendance. The pre-selected topic will be announced about a week in advance.
Dates and locations:
5/9/2023 Maryland Soccerplex
6/13/2023 Maryland Soccerplex
6/19/2023 Covenant Park (SAC Office)
7/17/2023 Covenant Park (SAC Office)
All clinics are 7:00pm to 9:00pm.
If there is good attendance at these clinics more will be scheduled in other areas of the state.
2023 Grassroots Recertification Clinics are now online. There are three different 2023 online recertification courses. They are:
Grassroots Referee Recertification (New) – you should register for this if you are a new referee (you completed your entry level clinic within the past year and your badge said “2022”). You will be emailed a Clinic Invitation Code for this course. Grassroots Referee Recertification (Intermediate) – you should register for this clinic if your original badge said 2021 and you have already recertified one time. You will be emailed a Clinic Invitation Code for this course. Grassroots Referee Recertification (Experienced) – you should register for this clinic if your original badge was 2020 or earlier. No Clinic Invitation Code is needed to register for this course.
If you have any questions or if you did not receive a Clinic Invitation Code, contact Terry Miller.
If you are planning to upgrade to Regional Referee for 2023, now is the time to start. If you have been a Grassroots Referee for 3 or more years and have the necessary game count, you can begin the process immediately. Here are the requirements for a Regional Referee. Please reach out to anyone on the State Referee Committee for additional information. We want to help you go as far as your abilities, desire, and commitment will take you!
