To: All Interested 2018 Soccer Official Candidates
From: David Rousseau, Officials Director – Fall Soccer
Thank you for your interest in officiating for us. Applications for the Fall 2018 season ARE CLOSED. A MANDATORY clinic is required for non-certified referees with less than 3 years experience. If you cannot attend, you must let me know immediately. It is highly encouraged that everyone attend at least the AM part of the clinic where we will discuss the assigning software you will need to use, GameOfficials.
Classroom Session: Saturday, 21 July 2018 from 10:00 AM - 6:00 PM @ Lake View Fire Hall Station #1, Upstains Classroom, Corner of Burke Road and Lake View Road
Fitness Test*: Sunday, 22 July 2018 2:30 - 3:30 PM @ Hamburg High School Track (Football Stadium @ 4111 Legion Drive, Hamburg NY 14075)
*The fitness test information can be found in the program guide by clicking the link above.
For returning candidates, we will be using a new assigning system (Game Officials, www.gameofficials.net). If you have been struggling with using the software, you can attend the clinic where any questions will be answered. If the handbook has been sufficient for you to get your account set up and availability established, then you do not need to attend the clinic! As usual, the first two hours will be dedicated to orientation and expecations, and the remaining 6 will be the crash course of the LOTG with the FIFA video test.
One benefit of GameOfficials is that you will be able to access the schedule with your assignments without logging into the system. The address to view the schedule can be found here: https://www.gameofficials.net/public/schedules/schedule.cfm?group=1662
You must complete any homework sent to you by e-mail before arriving. Please bring a pen, legal pad or notebook, your red and yellow cards, and a whistle (if you have these things) to the clinic. If you have any questions or concerns, please e-mail me at JamminSkier@aol.com
