Basic (Regional) Certification for U10 to U12 is for new referees and for U8 Officials moving up.
Classes will be entered in eAYSO by 1 June 2013 for signup.
Basic Referee Course
This course covers the full Laws of the Game. It is offered over three days. You must attend all days, plus take the Basic Referee written exam, which is offered on the third day. You must be a registered volunteer and you must pass the exam by a score of 75% or better.
The standard Basic (Regional) Referee Course will be given two times in 2013 at Cubberley Community Center, 4000 Middlefield Road, Palo Alto:
Class 1 Roster #: TBD (Room TBD)
Session 1 8/26/12 (Mon) 6:30-9:30 PM
Session 2 8/27/12 (Tue) 6:30-9:30 PM
Outside Session/Exam 8/28/12 (Wed) 6:30-9:30 PM
Class 2 Roster #: TBD (Room TBD)
Session 1 9/3/12 (Tue) 6:30-9:30 PM
Session 2 9/4/12 (Wed) 6:30-9:30 PM
Outside Session/Exam 9/5/12 (Thu) 6:30-9:30 PM
Both classes follow the same structure. You may mix and match the days of the course to suit your schedule. For example, take Session 1 the first week, and Session 2 and the Exam on the second week. You must, however, take Session 1, Session 2, and the Exam in that order. In eAYSO, register for the first course that you will attend.
Basic Referee Online Companion Course
This shortened, single session classroom course requires you to follow the same steps as for the regular course in order to receive your badge. However, you must additionally complete the 1.5-2 hour Basic Referee Online Course at www.aysotraining.org prior to the classroom clinic. To pass the exam it is important that you diligently work through the online course--those that run it in the background while checking their email do not pass the exam :-)! We recommend that you work through the online course a few days before the classroom session.
If you can't find quiet focus time to work through the online version, go to the standard three evening format course above. It's worked well for referees for years.
Bring comfortable clothes for the outside session.
The Basic Referee Online Companion Course (BROCC) will be given three times in 2013 at Cubberley Community Center, 4000 Middlefield Road, Palo Alto:
BROCC Class 1 Roster #: TBD (Room TBD)
