Good afternoon; 

I can't believe it, but March is here! Which means soccer is right around the corner.  Quick reminders/updates for our referees... please read... Easy as 1.2.3.

1) Certification
Recertification IN RICE LAKE March 12th - THIS WEEKEND!  Log on and get registered ASAP.  

Here is the link:
You MUST complete & pass the online portion BEFORE the in-class session, it takes 2-4 hours for the online modules.  Just log on and get it done. :) 

We have 12 registered from our club.  I count 3 missing from my anticipated count. This is your last chance to get certified to ref this season.  We cannot schedule you unless you are certified. 

Those registered for Saturday: Contact Jenifer or Ken.  List removed for Web posting. 

2) Update Contact Info
Part A. 
If you have not yet completed your first assignment with me, now is the time to do it.  Get online and update your emails in GameOfficials, we are loading fields and gearing up to schedule refs for Spring!

Part B. 
If you use the Remind App - I will try to use this as well for communication purposes, at least until we all get a handle on the GameOfficials text option. Here are the links for the group "RLSA Ref" that I just created.  Or text @8ek64 to 81010

3) Reimbursement
Once you have completed the course, send your receipt to  I will confirm you passed and all check requests will be made to the board for reimbursement by the 18th of March. Any requests after that date will go into my April requests.  

I do have two requests that have not been reimbursed from the October school - if you are waiting for reimbursement and have not sent in this information, please do, please email your receipt to, I will confirm your passing score, and get your reimbursement check in the requests placed on the 18th of March.  

What I need to process: 
1) Receipt from Course
2) Confirmation of Passing Course (I will confirm)
3) Name check should be written out to
4) Mailing address for check to be mailed to
5) Confirmation that you have updated your GameOfficials and you are ready to commit to ref for RLSA

That's all for now - enjoy this beautiful weather and see you Saturday! 

Next up... uniform discussions! :)
