Upcoming Novice Referee Clinic! 

Date:  Sunday, August 3, 2014

Time:  9:00am - 5:00pm

Location:  Upper Sandusky High School

                    800 North Sandusky Ave.   Upper Sandusky, Ohio  43351

Each person must go online at in order to complete the online training modules and register for a clinic.  Please allow plenty of time prior to the clinic date because you CANNOT register for the clinic until you have completed all online work. The online work could take 6 - 8 hours of time to complete depending on the person. 

For complete instructions it is best that you go to and on the left menu select "Become a Referee". This provides the detailed instructions to walk you through the steps toward registration. I would suggest that you print these out before trying to go online so that you have them for reference. 

Again, please allow plenty of time prior to the class as it cannot be completed the night before.
