This is a perfect time for U13/14 players to become involved with the club by refereeing.  It is also a perfect time for Mom and Dad to take the course with their child.  The Club is in need of adult referees.  The club is growing thus, more referees are needed.
SOMETHING NEW:  All parents are invited to attend the clinic, to see what referees are taught and to understand the laws of the game, at no charge.  The parents can then assist with the support of the new referee and perhaps answer questions of other parents.  After attending the clinic, should a parent choose to take the test and become a referee, the $50 fee would apply.  Otherwise, there is no charge for parents.

Adults attending to sit in, please call or email Bonnie Larson at the information below to say you will be at the clinic.
