On-Field Training Sessions in Savage Posted
Updated Feb 11, 2020

The Savage Sports Dome will once again be hosting a day of on-field training and scrimmage opportunities for brand new and newer referees on April 18. Three sessions, each lasting about three hours, will run from 11:45 AM through 4:00 PM, and each session can host up to 39 officials. This outstanding event allows inexperienced officials to work under the guidance of mentors in non-hostile, non-competitive settings and get comfortable with the practice of refereeing. These sessions are generously financially supported by MYSA and TCSL and are open to any referee with three or fewer years of experience.
