MYSA Coaches Handbook

The most important part of this:
No person may be on the fields training the children without these credentials on them. If you do not have your credentials during practice, League Officials will be required to cancel your practice and send families home. If you do not have your credentials during a game, the Referees will be required to cancel the game and send families home. This is non-negotiable, so please keep your credentials, once you receive them, with you AT ALL TIMES

———————————————-

Please contact Cheri Reina-Thunstrom, MYSA Development Director with any other questions about the program.

Referee Clinics – Spring 2017

Referee Director – Cheri Reina-Thunstrom, INTERIM

Referee Registration – All kids interested in entering the Referee program must email the Development Director at devdirector@methuensoccer.org for placement availability and information; age requirement to enter the program is 11 ½.

Each referee enters the program as a trainee. To become a certified referee, MYSA has a program that must be completed. During this time, the trainees are able to determine if refereeing is something they enjoy and would like to pursue. MYSA welcomes all kids interested in the program, but services are based on eligibility and availability. MYSA reserves the right to dismiss a referee for reasons including but not limited to: not meeting expectations, not following instructions or participating in mandatory training/certification/licensing, tardiness, or no show without proper replacement coverage or notification.
