PARK RIDGE SOCCER NEW REFEREE TRAINING CLINICS 2013
Park Ridge Soccer is again hosting referee-training clinics for new House League Referees and Traveling Team Assistant Referees (Linesmen). This is a great opportunity to participate in a unique experience, learn more about the game, and make a little folding money to boot. Clinics are equal opportunity, including parents, and welcome all ages (subject to minimum age requirements stated below). If you have questions on these clinics please contact Jim or Marty O’Donnell at 847-696-2343.
Upon completion of the training clinics, PRS monitors each official’s development with an assigned mentor to assist the new referee/assistant referee with on-the-field advice and instruction throughout the season. The volunteers from our Referee Mentor Team are committed to making the young referee’s experience a positive one.
