SRC "Parenting a Referee" Video

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.
