Yankton / Vermillion March 2012

YYSA/VYSL will hold a new referee course in March.


The first day will be in Yankton at the Summit Activities Center Classrooms on Sunday March 11 beginning at 11:00.


The second day will be on Saturday March 17 in Vermillion at the Lee Medical School Building Room 107 beginning at 8:00 AM.


Each day is 8 hours in length.  Re-certifying referees of any current grade may attend 4 hours of either day to re-certify at their current grade.  New referees and any current Grade 9 (blue patch) referees that desire to bridge to grade 8 referees must attend both days of the course. Upon successful completion of the course these attendees will be certified as Grade 8 referees.


Costs to the attendees under age 18 (payable to Yankton Youth Soccer Association) are:


$50 for re-certifying grade 9 referees, new referee attendees, grade 9 referees bridging to grade 8, and grade 8 referees that are re-certifying,

$55 for re-certifying grade 7 referees, and $85 for re-certifying grade 6 referees.  If the attendee is over 18 years of age please add $5 to each of the previous amounts to cover the mandated background check.


All attendees must pre-register by emailing Kevin Bray at dockbb@me.com by March 5 so we can order an adequate amount instructional materials.  Please let me know if you are a new referee (never have been previously certified) or are a grade 9 upgrading to grade 8, or if you plan to re-certify at your present grade and what day you plan to attend.
