CVSRA Informational Night

CVSRA is hosting an informational/training night for our members. We hold several training sessions a year and the first hour of each is dedicated to organizational basics for those who are new or have questions about procedures/expectations.

INFORMATION - The first half of the session is to inform attendees of our organizational procedures, policies, and expectations and to make ourselves available for any questions you may have regarding the assigning process, mentor program and managing Arbiter.

TRAINING - The second half of the session is a referee training topic presented by Joe and all are welcome/encouraged to stay as the training is invaluable when it comes to tips on game management and practical applications of soccer Laws.

Referees who are new to our organization are required to attend at least one session within a year of joining us to remain in the regular season rotation. If you have attended one, you are still welcome to come to the first half if you have questions, and we encourage you as mentioned above to come for the training half.

Parents of youth referees are welcome to attend as I am aware many of you are managing your child’s soccer schedule.

To pre-register and save yourself a seat, email Joe Sheridan

Spring Break Training - North

All are invited and highly encouraged to attend this session or the one south of the river April 2.  Both sessions will be presenting the same material; Sign-in starts at 5:30 p.m. and will begin promptly at 6:00 p.m.

These training sessions are not mandatory and are supplemental to the certification and recertification classes that many of you are required to attend for USSF.

The first hour (6:00 to 6:50 p.m.) is primarily for NEW referees and will focus on the administrative duties and requirements (how you get games and how you get paid!).  The first hour will also present various ins and outs of the ArbiterSports web site.  How to block dates and times, where to post emergency contacts information.  How to attach to teams if you are still a player.  And much more.

Starting at 7:00 p.m. the training will focus on higher level youth games and the adult leagues.  This part of the evening will primarily focus on U-15 and higher travel and scholastic leagues along with the adult leagues.

To pre-register and save yourself a seat, email Joe Sheridan to be added to the Spring Break Training Sessions in ArbiterSports, where you can then log into your account and accept or decline.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out and contact me.
