Attention New Referees- There will be an informational meeting for all new referees for the spring on April 4, 2013 at 7:30pm at the TBAYS office (1820 Oak Hollow Dr., Suite B)
All referee assignments, including youth for TBAYS, will be handled by Tom Spencer at email@example.com
Referee Payment for U10 and U12 youth games (TBAYS)
- Grade 9 U10-$10, U12-$12
- Grade 8 U10-$14, U12-$16
- Grade 7 U10- $17, U12-$19
- Grade 6 and up U10-$20, U12-$22
1. Those referees who are certifying, that means all grade 7, 8 and 9′s, will need to take the online test before attending the course.
Thus, it is especially important for recert.referees to do this test now, even for the clinics held in Feb, March and April.
2. All entry level grade 9 new referees and all current grade 9 referees who plan to take the upgrade 8 clinic, also called bridge, will be given the test in class by the instructors. No need to go online looking for a test for these groups of referees.
Note: FOR UPCOMING RE-CERTIFICATION CLINICS: Only in excusable situations, such as referees you are NOT able to contact, will I allow to give a test in class. The test will be similar to the online test. The online test is easier to receive a score greater than 75, because of additional assistance within the test program.
Registration must be done at MSYSA referee site, you can not register onsite
Starting Nov. 1, online testing for re-certification for all Venues will need to be done by both grade 7/8 and grade 9 referees before they come to their respective clinics. There will be two separate tests–7/8 and 9.
On November 1, Referees will receive an email with instructions on how to access the Online Testing system; the same instructions will also be available on November 1st at www.michiganReferee.org so if you don’t receive the email, check the website. Referees will need to pass the test and bring the printed certificate available after taking the test to show they have taken the test. A review of the test will take place early in the clinic they plan to attend.
***USSF Recert. time is coming up. Referees will not get anything in the postal mail from USSF this year. You will only get an email from US Soccer.
All referees must go to the michiganreferee.org website (which is new this year) for complete information on clinic details and to register online. Click on classes once on the website and next go to the re-certification for grade 7,8,9 link which opens all the areas in Michigan. Scroll down to your area of interest. Referees cannot register in class. At this point, it is not certain if US soccer will issue cards or forms to remind referees to register on line as they have done so in past years. Referees be sure to bring their Proof of Payment to class so that our Instructors know they have registered properly and we can get them the badge after the clinic is finished.
