THESE REQUESTS ARE FOR

GSSA

AFFILIATED LEAGUES ONLY!


2015 RECERTIFICATION COURSES MAY BE SCHEDULED FOR ANY SUNDAY AND ENTRY CLASSES ANY SATURDAY BEFORE AUGUST 31, 2016

* * We are phasing out the Upgrade to R8 from R9. It will be replaced with the GR08 Course. This course will be limited to people who will be 15 years of age or older as of the date of the classroom session. It will be open to current R9s as well as New referee candidates. It has also been made public, so coordinators can request it directly, just like R9 Entry and Recertification classes.

Note: Saturday, July30 and August 20 are CLOSED to new classes.

Note: When emailing about a class, if it is approved, please include the class number, like 1234-E, in the subject or the first line. If it has been requested but not approved, please include the name of your club in the same places. I have not memorized the links between every coordinator and their club, and lots of people have multiple classes listed. Thanks.

Facility requirements

The classroom facilities must comfortably seat the people registered, plus the course referee coordinator and two (2) instructors.  There should be tables or a flat surface on which to write for the students.

  1. There must be a projector screen (or suitable wall) for projecting  video images.  A screen is the preferred method as a wall tends to not reflect the video images as well as a screen.  A spare LCD projector, if possible, is needed as a backup for the GSSA projector. A whiteboard or easel with paper is advisable. It is also best if the room can be made dark enough to see videos. Black garbage bags cut up and applied to the windows with tape work well for this.
  2. A field is required for the field exercise in Entry (R9) and R8 classes.  If a soccer field is not accessible, an open field (e.g., a baseball field, lacrosse field) will suffice. A lawn or parking lot is NOT acceptable.  If the weather prevents going outside, a gym or large room could be substituted for the soccer field. Parking lots and venues without access to a field are not acceptable. If no field is available at the site, the host should make arrangements for siting the field exercise at another location. If this is a problem, contact the State Director of Instruction to discuss options.
  3. Every attempt should be made to provide a lined soccer field or an open field such as a baseball field that can be temporarily lined


  1. Notes:

·  For ALL Courses, a minimum of fifteen (15) people must be registered with the GSSA office one (1) week prior to the course date or the course may be cancelled.  The league may guarantee the course for the course fee difference between the number of people that attend and 15. Some exceptions may be made for isolated locations with small referee or potential referee populations.

Suggestion: If you would like to host a course but feel you may have difficulty registering 15 people from your league, find out if there is an interested neighboring league and jointly host the referee course.

·  The league must arrange for a proper facility and a local referee coordinator to be present for the course. For Entry Courses, the local assignor should be there near the end of class to tell students how to get games from them.

·  Dates will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis.  Some course dates might be changed if more than ten (10) courses are planned for the same date or more than one course is planned for the same area and same date, so please provide three (3) sets of dates if possible. 

·  The class hours for the Entry-Level courses are nine (9) hours including a lunch hour. It is possible to host Entry Classes (R9 and R8) on a series of weeknights if it is Summer (August) and the nights are light enough and warm enough. Contact the SDI if you need to set up this type of class.

·  The Recertification course is four (4) hours and should be scheduled for a Sunday if possible.

If you have any questions, email the Georgia State Director of Instruction at garefsdi@gmail.com .
