USSF-licensed referees or returning OYAA referees WITH AT LEAST 3 SEASONS OF CONTINUOUS EXPERIENCE will need to stay for the first hour of the meeting. Attendees should bring a notepad and pen or pencil. There will be a short test at the end of class to review material and assess game knowledge.

Schedules will post on the Arbiter Sports site for referees to pick dates, times and locations that work for their personal schedules. Referees will be informed at the preseason meetings and via email when games will be available for sign up. New referees will be provided information at the meeting on registering for Arbiter.
