Missing Emails

I have had several emails that I send out bounce back to me! I use email as my primary way of contact for sending updates on the schedule! If you have not been receiving my emails, please email me at [email protected] so I can update the correct email for you on the list for updates! I would hate for anyone to miss out due to a miscommunication!

State Certifications

Here are the links for all of the certifications that the state requires us to have.

Only applies to Referees 18 AND OLDER:
- Background Check (must be completed every two years)
- SafeSport (please email me at [email protected] for the access code)

Applies to ALL REFEREES:
- Concussion Certification, (must be completed every three years) click on the 'Launch the Course' icon on the right side of the screen (under the image of the laptop). Some people have been having issues with the CDC website, if you are one of those people, then you can also get a certification from the NHFS Concussion Training, just hit 'Order Course' once you have selected Ohio as the state
- Sudden Cardiac Arrest Video, Sudden Cardiac Arrest Hand-out, and Sudden Cardiac Arrest Acknowledgement Form

2024 Referee Training

Welcome back everyone! It is that time of year again, start dusting off your rule books, because it time for some training! :D

For all NEW Referees
All new referees are required to attend a training seminar. I am holding the class on Monday July 29th & Wednesday July 31st at the Springboro Community Room (320 W Central Ave, Springboro, OH 45066). Both classes will be from 6pm-8pm.

Feel free to start reviewing the laws of the game using the link below!

- SAY Online Training - SAY offers a great online training program where you can even take practice quizzes to help you remember the information. Because of limited class time, I tend to just do a basic overview, SAY's program is much more detailed!
- There hasn't been any major rule changes this season, so you can reference the 2021 Referee Training Powerpoint. This is the presentation that I use for the class, once again this is more of a basic overview, but is a good resource to use while studying for the test!
- For those who want to get REALLY detailed, here is the 2022 SAY Soccer Playing Laws Rulebook. This is going to be super helpful for new referees who want to study before the test! The rules haven't changed sense last year, so the 2022 Rulebook is still valid!

For all RETURNING Referees
The training is not mandatory for you, but you are more than welcome to join! If you choose to not join in on the seminar, I recommend looking over the rules anyway to help refresh your memory for the test! ;D

For ALL Referees
There will be a recertification test that everyone will have to take. The test will be held August 3rd at Clearcreek Park at 10am. Make sure to wear proper shoes because we will be going over field mechanics before the test. Also make sure you are all up to date on your State Certifications (SafeSport, Concussion, ect...) links to each are included below! Please bring a copy of the completed certificates to the test so I can collect them for my records! [:

As always, feel free to email me at [email protected] with any questions or concerns!
