House Leage Referees- NEW!!!
If you are 12 or 13 years old you could become an OMSA Houseleage referee. This is a great way to earn some extra money while at the same time helping out the community. There is a small course for you to take to become a referee in OMSA house league.
This is for those under 14yrs old and want to referee mini soccer / house league / AR U-12
The course is the Look Sharp – Be Sharp program. It is an all day course with lots of time spent in the gym doing practical assignments – how to do
proper flag technique, blow your whistle, call a foul, start the game coin toss, etc. etc. Very practical – the basic tools to get started.
The participants will be granted an ASA referee badge
I HIGHLY recommend this for your beginners – get them through the practical LSBS course and get them started in local house league mini-soccer and the they can work up into the big field full course next year. … a great way to develop new referees.
ALL COURSE WILL BE AT THE OLDS ELEMENTARY SCHOOL IN THE ART ROOM
