The Rhode Island PRO clinic will be held on Saturday February 25, 2017. This year’s featured speaker will be for MLS Assistant Referee Eric Proctor.
Eric made his MLS debut in 2009 and has worked over 50 games through the 2013 season. His highlights include the USL 2 and US Soccer 2 Championship matches in 2010 and the USL Pro Championship in 2012. He continues to officiate at the collegiate level and work as an assessor in the state of Florida.
The PRO clinic is open to any referees grade 7 and above, instructors, assessors and assignors. There is a morning and an afternoon session. Each session counts towards 4 hours of inservice training. Registration is now open in game officials.
You know that you are certified and approved to referee this year if your status in gameofficials has changed to a green State Approved next to your exam course. Your inservices should be listed as Met Requirements for that course.
You will receive a card in the mail from US Soccer and you will receive your 2017 badge at the Super Liga referee meetings in the spring.
You should now begin the process to recertify for 2018. You will need to attend 4 hours of inservice training this year, complete the annual exam and pay the annual fee. This will need to be done before December 31, 2017 or late fees will apply.
You should monitor your registration history after you take a course and be sure that the status changes from Pending to Met Requirements. If not, you should notify the instructor listed on your course to find out why you didn’t receive credit for the class. Don’t wait until December 31, 2017 to find out why
