Registration for EYSA Referee - Grade 8 Clinic is open. The dates are: Monday 7/18, Tuesday 7/19, Thursday 7/21 and Saturday 7/23. We can add another clinic in August if this one fills up.
Here’s a link to the details:
There are no age limits on the clinic, but EYSA will contract only with referees who are 13 or older. So I’d recommend they are 13 before Oct 1. East King County Soccer Referee Association (EKCSRA) would prefer referees be 14, but don’t require it.
Remember to be part of the Ref-in-Pool program this year, you must be an adult (18 or older) or you had to be a Ref-in-Pool last year and refereed 3+ games for the Ref-in-Pool program. Plus you must have a Grade 8 certification.
There will be Grade 9 clinic for the same age group which will train them to referee at the other EYSA clubs (U08+ rec games). Details will be forthcoming when the clinic dates are established.
There will also be a Bridge clinic in August that will transform a Grade 9 certification to a Grade 8 certification.
