  • Feeling a little "off" after refereeing last weekend's match?
  • Want to learn more "tricks of the trade"?
  • Thinking of hanging it up and becoming a coach?
  • Looking for an answer to that perplexing refereeing question?
  • Wondering why you decided to Referee Soccer?
  • Just want to improve your skills?

  • How it works

    We have developed a referee mentoring program for this fall.  The idea is to provide a positive environment where referees can learn from their more experienced colleagues before, during, and after their games. We're not talking about critical assessments. Learning to referee is sometimes stressful enough. We intend to provide informal observation and friendly advice. See our goals below for our program:

    Make resources available to volunteer referees:
    • through informal on-field observation
    • through informal advice and consultation off the field
    • via electronic media such as the Web
    Facilitate the job of referee coordinators:
    • by providing contacts to referees from other divisions
    • by publishing referee information of general use
    Encourage referee education and development:
    • by sharing knowledge, experience, and wisdom
    • by advertising referee clinics and advanced courses
    • by offering opportunities to referee in different gender/age groups
     

     
    What will the Mentor provide?

    • Provide you with constructive feedback on efficient ways to perform your duties and handle issues on the fields.

    How will the Mentor do this

    The mentoring will happen in one or two methods:

    1. Watch your match from sidelines and take notes
    2. Referee with you side by side or as one of your Assistant Referees (AR)
    Here's what we will do:

    • Provide mentors for referees who specifically request them and, in general, for candidates looking to "up" the certification to intermediate level badges and above.
    • Assign experienced referees to observe lower age group games on a drop-by basis.
    • Such referees will assist the regular referee team by helping with sideline control and by offering supportive advice.
    • Encourage higher level referees to act as mentors and to referee in at least one lower-level age group at some point during the season.
    • Find assignments for referees that are looking for a more challenging age group.
