REFEREE CERTIFICATION PROCESS

All Cincinnati Hills SAY Soccer referees are required to be certified every year.

The 2019 certification (new and returning referees) will involve three key elements; on-line course training, classroom training and on-field training. 

You MUST register first at your district (please see Referee Registration) and then at the League (links and instructions are included within the Madeira Referee Registration).

  • Laws of the game
  • Signals
  • League policies and requirements

b) Classroom sessions will cover the following topics:

 
  • Points-of-emphasis (League policies, game management, etc.)
  • Pre-game procedures
  • Game management
  • Core focus areas - off-sides, handling, foul recognition, etc.
  • Parent and team management
  • Referee on-line account training (within our new league sites)
