January 3, 2017

Referees, welcome to 2017 and I want to wish all of you a happy 2017.

1.  We have reached that time where we have been busy and forgot to recertify for 2017.  If you have already completed all requirements, thank you and have fun this year.  If not the following is for you:.

2.  If you are a grade 8 or 9 then go to azreferees.gameofficials.net and log in and go to courses and select the grade 8 or 9 part 1 recert session.  After completion of that look for a part 2 that is near you and attend and you will be eligible to referee again.  You may have to travel for the part 2 depending on where they are and there will be more coming.  .

3.  For grade 6 referees who did not complete a fitness or assessments you will be registered as a 7 as long as you attend the classroom session and completed your online material.  Then after completion of your maintenance assessments I will upgrade you to a 6.  If you did not register and attend a grade 6 session then you are currently not certified or if you registered but did not complete the online part then you are not currently certified.  If this is the case contact me or Wendell.

4.  For grade 7 referees, if you registered, completed all online portions,  and attended the session you are good to go.  If any of the parts are not complete then you are not current.  

5.  Please congratulate Sam Rozinski on his selection as Region IV Youth male Referee of the Year and Briana Parisian as region IV Youth female Referee of the year!

Look here for more information.  Please look online at the law changes if you have not.  There is a whole new format to the LOTG.  If any questions please do not hesitate to contact myself or any of the ASRA board.
