March 13 Update:

Based on the recommendations of national and local health officials as well as government representatives and following the lead of US Soccer's Referee programming, the Ohio North State Referee Committee has postponed all courses through the month of March. In every clinic we talk that our primary responsibility is safety. There was a meeting this morning (Friday) and phone conversations are ongoing to provide the best training and preparation for our referees when they are able to take the field. Discussions are centering on available technology and how to use those means to best prepare referees. Games will take place this spring and there will be even more need than before to have qualified officials ready to assist our game.
