UPDATE 2-Referee Clinic in March

Ladies and Gents due to overlap between this referee clinic and a coaching clinic I [Peter Stilling] have been asked by many of you if I could stagger the clinics so that many of you could participate in both.  I cannot move the coaching clinic, but I can move the referee clinic.  As such, the referee clinic will be moved.  See below for new dates and times.

Here is the update / modification (Revision 2 as of 1/24/2014) to the Rexburg USSF ELC (Entry Level Clinic)

Due to the National Office changing the methodology of the ELC (USSF Entry Level Clinic / USSF Grade 8 clinic) I have had to modify my clinic to accommodate this new paradigm.  Entry Level Clinics / Grade 8 clinics are still 16 hours long, but 8 hours of the clinic is now done online prior to attending the 8 hours in the classroom.

As such, I have shortened my clinic classroom dates to:

Wednesday, March 19 thru Thursday, March 20.

BYU-Idaho
Smith Building Room 323
Rexburg, Idaho

Wednesday, March 19th, 6-10pm, Classroom Instruction

Thursday, March 19th, 6-10pm, Classroom Instruction, Testing, Grading, and Registration

Because of all of the rearranging and such I have had to drop the opportunity to hear from our guest speakers.

I offer them my gratitude for being willing to donate their time, but time is clearly against us in this case.

All attendees MUST preregister with me.  If you do not pre-register you will not be given instructions on how to do the online portion of the clinic.

If you do not do the online portion of the clinic, you will not have your certificates of completion and thus I will deny you entrance to the classroom portion of the clinic.

ALL ATTENDEES MUST PREREGISTER WITH ME, PETER STILLING.  My contact information is located at the bottom of this message.

The clinic is $25 and to register with USSF is $40 for a total of $65.  For those paying by check, make the check out to ISRC for $65.00

Cash is also acceptable.  No credit cards.

 

Thank you.

MESSAGE FROM PETER STILLING:
“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.”
