DSA Needs Certified Referees. Training session in Darien now.

DSA needs Certified Soccer Referees to work the Club Excel and Travel league games in Darien each weekend. 

This is a great "first job" opportunity for kids. (must be 13 by 6/30/2017 to certify)  Refs can earn $25 to $75 per match.  DSA has one of the best referee development programs in the area.  We provide support and mentoring every step of the way.  And a very user friendly assigning system.  You get to pick the games you want.  (For more info on DSA Referee Program, click on the link at the top of the DSA Home Page.)

The certification process is conducted by the Connecticut State Referee Program, not DSA.  It consists of a 2-3 hour online course.  Once you complete all the on line modules, you will be able to sign up for the half day Field Training session.  You must complete the online portion by March 18th.

To sign up for the course, go to: www.ctreferee.net

PLEASE NOTE:  We have been fortunate enough to schedule a Field Training session in Darien  on Sunday March 19th from 9-2.  All of the other sessions are elsewhere across the state, at least an hour + away.

Take advantage of these convenient session right in town.  Get the online segment done now so you can sign up for this Darien class before if fills up.  

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
