JKYSC has completed it’s annual referee certification for 2019. You may get certified yourself before then by registering on the ohnreferees site linked below and driving to an in-person clinic.
The club is in need of Referees to create a fair and exciting environment for games. Youth in their second year of U12 up to Adults are encouraged to participate. Because we have run U20 – U10 ages, older high schoolers and adult referees are always welcomed to the club.
Benefits of refereeing include
- Providing a service to your club and your community
- Great exercise, you will be required to run to be close to the action to make calls
- Give the children a great competitive experience by providing a fair and level game with clear rules enforcement
- Help the coaches, they are often the most appreciative of having refs available for their games
- Earn some extra money on the side doing something fun.
