Grade 7 Referee Course Upcoming

FROM PETER STILLING:

USSF Grade 7 Course

DATE: Tuesday, July 8, 6-10 pm and Wednesday, July 9, 6-10 pm (both nights are required)

LOCATION: BYU-Idaho, Hart Building Room 170

By the new standards that will go into effect on July 1, 2014, a candidate will not be required to have been a Grade 8 Referee to become a Grade 7 referee. However, it is my personal recommendation that the referee has at least completed the Grade 8 online material so that they at least have a basic framework of The Laws of the Game before becoming a Grade 7 referee.  Although this is not mandatory nor can I enforce such a requirement, I make the statement none-the-less.

The purpose of the Grade 7 Referee Course is to prepare officials for the amateur adult game. Based on the level of training provided, U.S. Soccer recommends that these officials be assigned accordingly to best service the game.

See attached Referee Requirements to see the new requirements for the various Grade levels.
