New Referee - Grass Roots Training is currently OPEN for registration.

Summary of the Grass Roots Training Process:

The New Referee - Grassroots Training process (formerly known as Entry Level Training) is a combination of an On-Line Training Course to be completed at your own pace and once completed registration and attendance to (1) in-person/in-class session of 5 hours. Two Grassroots Training sessions will be offered per year.

Session I:
Grassroots Training registration and access to the online modules will be open through 8/31/18. Once the online modules are complete you will register for and attend one required "in-person" session. The required "in-person" sessions will start 8/11/18 and run through 9/9/18. At least one "in-person" session will be available on a first come first serve basis almost every weekend somewhere in the state in that time period. Once the online training process and in-person session is complete, certification is valid for the remainder of 2018 and all of calendar year 2019. If you do not complete the "full" Grassroots Training process in Session I you may complete the training process in Session II.

Session II:
Grassroots Training registration for Session II will open 1/15/19 and run through 3/31/19 with the required in person sessions starting in mid-February and ending April 7, 2019. Once the Grassroots Training Process is complete certification is valid for the remainder of 2019.

You must complete the entire New Referee - Grassroots Training process, including the in person session by 4/7/19; at this point there is no carryover to the next session and there will be no refunds.
