2007 Referees

Welcome back for another great year with the East Hanover Soccer Club

Due to the overwelming turnout of referees in recent years the Board of Directors has made a decision to increase the skill level of the club's referees.

In doing so there will been a new structure to the referee program.  All referees will be required to take a training class in order to referee games for the 2007 recreation season.  This training will benefit both the referees and the players.  Also, all first year referees will be assistant referees (this means running the lines with a flag).  This will generate a better understanding for the game and how to referee.  The minimum age to enter the referee program will be twelve (12) years of age by the beginning of the season. 

There will be 4 Levels of referees:

1. Grade 8 license which is a 20 hour course.

2. Grade 9 license which is an 8 hour course. The East Hanover Soccer Club ran a Grade 9 class on Aug 11 at the rec center. There will another course coming up before next season.

3. For anyone unable to make it to a grade 8 or 9 course there will be a 3 hour class held at the recreation center on Sept 5th.  You should emial Nickg83@aol.com to register for this class.

4. Anyone in their first year with the program will be assistant referees.
