Referee in-service training

Next In-Service Training:
Ever shown up to ref a soccer match, only to discover that your AR didn’t show up or—gulp!—you are the only referee present?  Ever given a flag to a parent, only to see them texting on their phone during the game?
What do you do?!  Go hide in your car?  Bribe some runner passing by to wear your jersey?  Ref the game while holding one whistle between your teeth, and one flag in each hand?

To find out the answer (none of the above!), join us for the Region 218 Fall Referee In-service on “Refereeing with Fewer than Three”!
