Greetings Soccer Referees!
It has been a blast to meet and work with you all these past two weekends. I have seen some excellent officiating both from many center referees and assistant referees these past two weekends. I commend you all for the dedication and commitment to ‘the beautiful game.’ I will be sending out weekly notes as well as selecting a ‘referee of the week’ on a weekly basis. Below is the first set of ‘Words From The D.O.O.’ Continue reading

Classes are now underway for referee certification and re-certification.
There are a number of recert courses in January for both regular and intermediate level referees.
Please review the website at: http://www.kansasreferee.org/instruction/courses for a list of open courses.
Please re-register! We need everyone back for 2017.
The fall referee meeting for all SCSA referees will be held on Friday Aug 5 at 6:00pm.
Pizza will be served and there will be door prizes!
The meeting will be at the Sedgwick County Extension office (7001 W 21st St N, Wichita, KS)
While not “mandatory” it is strongly suggested you attend. Attendees will have a leg up on assignments over those who do not attend, especially the first few weekends. New referees should consider it mandatory.
The last scheduled recert clinic for Wichita referees is Sunday February 28. There are still seats available as of today. If you have not signed up to recertify PLEASE DO SO. We are going to have a record number of teams again for a spring season including large U16 and High school divisions (boys).
If you are unable to attend that date, there are others available throughout the state. Please review the classes available at https://ksreferee.gameofficials.net/public/class/classSearch.cfm?classTypeID=570.
Let me know if you have any questions.

Scheduling is underway for fall middle school and non-KSHSAA high school games.
Please contact me ASAP if you are interested in working these games. We have new middle school programs this year so we can definitely use all the help we can get.
You do NOT have to be KSHSAA / NF certified to work these middle school or high school games although you do need to be familiar with the high school rules (middle school plays under same rules as high school with shorter games).
It seems that there is quite a bit of inconsistency with the way we are refereeing U7/U8 games. Continue reading
