The Minnesota State Referee Committee prepared the video, "Parenting a Referee." This 20-minute, free-navigation video is designed to provide parents of referees age 17 and younger information on how to help your child succeed as and enjoy being a referee, and hints and tips on pitfalls to avoid. Every referee parent, whether your child is experienced or brand new, will gain information to help your child better succeed on the field.
Registration is currently open to become certified for new refs. Registration will open sometime in December for recertifying refs.
A summary of the certification procedures are listed below. For more information, on the process, please refer to the Training Requirements page on the Minnesota State Referee Committee website.
There are three summer clinics, July 25 in Burnsville, August 1 in Brooklyn Park and August 8 in Apple Valley.
If you have any questions on the certification or recertification process, please contact Mike.
Recertification is required annually. Registration usually opens sometime in December. Each grade has different requirements, depending if you are staying at the same grade or upgrading. Please refer to the SRC site for your requirements.
