“After 5pm, a parking pass is not needed.  Do not park in Service Parking, Fire Zone, or Handicapped Zone (unless you have a Handicapped Placard).  All other parking is first come, first serve.The Entry Level portion of the clinic will be Tuesday thru Friday with the written exam given on Saturday morning at 8am. The test will take one hour with a required review and grading period afterward.  Plan on being completely done with the test around 9:30am to 10am.

For those that want to attend but may have conflicts with soccer practice or soccer games, please let me know in advance so that arrangements can be made.  All needs for arrangements should be announced the first night if not sooner.

After the test is completed, the USSF fitness test will be given on the BYU-Idaho Track.  The test will begin at 10:30am. This test is required for all Grade 6 referees and above wishing to recertify (see attached document).  However, I STRONGLY encourage ANY and ALL referees to challenge themselves to take the test to give yourself and idea of where you are personally with your level of fitness.  The USSF fitness test is a minimum standard of fitness.  If you can’t pass the test, then you need to do some introspection with regard to where you are and where you need to be.  The test criteria is attached.

After the test, I will cut everyone lose for lunch.

Meet back at the BYU-Idaho stadium field at 1:30 for on field training.  Wear comfortable clothing, bring your whistle, cards, flags, running shoes or cleats and be ready to move about.

We will be on the field for about 90 mins then will go back inside around 3pm to learn from some other senior officials.”
