Entry Level Referee Course

Posted - February 9, 2015

Redding Youth Soccer League, in conjunction with US Soccer and California North Referee Association (CNRA), will be presenting an Entry Level Referee Course for those interested in becoming certified youth soccer referees.

The time and dates are as follows:

Saturday, Feb. 28:  8:00 am to 5:00 pm

Sunday, March 1:  10:00 am to 2:00 pm

Location:  Redding Soccer Park

               Conference Room

               9800 Old Oregon Trail

               Redding, CA 96003

The format for this course has changed compared to years past. There is now an online component (approximately 2-3 hours) consisting of 14 instructional videos, associated chapter quizzes, and a 50 question final exam.  These must ALL be completed prior to the in-person Classroom (8 hours) and Field (4 hours) sessions .   You will have two chances to pass the online final exam.  If you are successful, there is no exam at the Course; if you are not successful after two online attempts, you must retake the exam during the classroom course portion.

The cost will be $10, payable to Redding Youth Soccer League.   RYSL will rebate your $10 fee after you referee one game for RYSL within the first playing season after your course.    If successful in passing the certification exam, there will be an additional $45 charge payable to California North Referee Association (CNRA) that you can pay at the Ccourse.

If interested, please send me your $10 to:
