Referee Course March 10th and 11th, 2018. 

Recently WAGS sponsored USSF E coaching license over the summer. Following the smashing success of the coaching course, WAGS seeks to do the same for the referee community. It is universally acknowledged that there are far too few female referees. Our young female soccer players who are considering taking up officiating are lacking role models. This clinic is an opportunity to increase the quantity and quality of female referees in the metro area in a supportive, female centric environment.

 The course will be taught by VA/DC instructor Diane Florkowski.

 The location of the course is Edison High School, 5301 Franconia Road, Alexandria Virginia

Clinic is scheduled 9:30-11:30 am March 10, 2018 at Edison High School's Field, 12:00-4:00 in classroom 112 at Edison, and 9:30-12:30 March 11, 2018 in classroom 112. Candidates must attend all three sessions completely and complete all the online modules before the clinic to attend the clinic

To register for the course a candidate must receive an override code. Email info@womenandgirlsinsoccer.org  to obtain a code.
