Refreshers

This is a reminder that you must register and attend a refresher this spring in order to referee in the 2017 season. KSRA has booked 2 refreshers so far, with more to come!. If you are an existing youth or higher referee you are required to attend one of the refreshers listed below. Small-sided officials do not need to attend these refreshers (details will be provided later regarding a separate small-side refresher). 

 

March 26 - 12:00-3:00

March 26 - 3:00 - 6:00 

 

All of the refreshers are held at the Kamloops Soccer Dome. Please dress appropriately for the fitness test.

 

 You must preregister to attend a refresher. Register through your ref centre account (http://www.refcentre.com), under the tab "Registration" select "Refresher Courses" and then choose which one you would like to attend. 

 

The cost of the refresher is free, however in April you will need to complete your annual registration with BC Soccer ($60.00 + $4.25 system processing fee). In addition, please bring your $25 (cash or cheque) KSRA membership fee to the refresher with you.  

 

Please note that small-sided referees do not need to attend one of these refreshers (stay tuned for details on a specific small-sided refresher), nor pay the annual registration with BC Soccer. 

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. 

 

Thank you,

Top Level Assistant Refereeing (Portland vs RealSalt Lake)

posted Mar 30, 2016, 7:21 PM by KSRA Secretary

Here's a recent posting on PROREFEREES.COM which focuses on a 5 minute span in a recent MLS game. In this short time the Assistant Referee is called upon several times to make complex and courageous decisions. This is great stuff, and all of it can just as easily happen at any of the levels in which we have ARs assigned.

TOYSL information

posted Apr 22, 2015, 4:30 PM by KSRA Secretary

See below for important TOYSL information.

1) There is a slightly revised TOYSL game sheet we are using this year.
The main change is the addition of a discipline key.  Also, the referee’s e-mail is requested instead of the phone number.  (In case there are questions regarding the game.)  There is also an error on the game sheet.  Please do not use the e-mail at the top of the sheet.  Submit instead to www.toysl.net. (Located under quick links on the right hand side of site.)  District admin and managers have been asked to cross it out and place the correct website on the game sheets but a couple will be sure to be missed.

2) Submit an incident report within 24 hours if a card is given out during the game.  It is quite important.  TOYSL issues a discipline report to all districts on Tuesday following game weekends.  Districts need to deal with discipline issues before a player’s next game.  (We always have an accumulation of yellow cards for some players during the season that result in sitting out a game or on occasion a hearing and further suspension.)

3)  Do NOT submit game scores for U11/U12 development games.  Stats are not kept in that age group.
