2022 Grassroots Referee Recertification

Once again, Grassroots Referee Recertification will be totally online for 2022. As was the case last year, there are 3 varying sets of lessons, depending on your experience level.

If you were certified as a new Grassroots Referee in 2021, you should register for the clinic titled Grassroots Recertification (NEW). If you are in this category, you will be emailed a Clinic Invitation Code.

If your original Grassroots Referee badge was dated 2020 (you already recertified one time to obtain your 2021 badge), you should register for the clinic titled Grassroots Recertification (INTERMEDIATE). If you are in this category, you will be emailed a Clinic Invitation Code.

If your original Grassroots Referee badge was dated 2019 or earlier (you have already recertified two or more times), you should register for the clinic titled Grassroots Recertification (EXPERIENCED). No Clinic Invitation Code is needed for this course.

Some of the lessons are the same in all 3 courses, however some differ. Once you have successfully completed all of the online lessons, your 2022 badge will be mailed to you. If you have any questions, please contact Jimmy Graham, SRA or email to [email protected].

 

The passing of Greg Watson

On Sunday, March 21, 2021, long time Maryland State Referee Administrator, Greg Watson passed away from COVID-19-related complications.

Greg was a friend & mentor for many of us, as well as a dedicated & passionate member of the Maryland referee community for decades. Over the years, he personally and positively impacted the lives of countless individuals and played an important role in the career development of thousands of referees. The Maryland Referee Program has lost one of its true heroes. Greg will be sorely missed.

Rest in peace.
