BYSL seeks referees

Bonneville Youth Soccer League is always looking for new referees. In the fall, it is typically more difficult to field full crews due to many of our referees also being high school players. With high school games also being, played many of the more experienced referees are officiating those games. It often leaves youth games in BYSL severely shorthanded. There is a referee training from 8 a.m.-noon on Sept. 7 at First Presbyterian Church at 325 Elm St. in Idaho Falls. For more registration information/questions and requirements, please contact Rick Spielman at crspielman@gmail.com. This course requires a moderate level of physical activity and may be conducted outdoors. Wear appropriate clothing. Bring your own whistle, your own snacks and water as you desire (water and restrooms are available). This clinic will take approximately 4 hours to complete. If it can be arranged, the clinic may be moved to one of the soccer fields so the students will get to practice during a soccer scrimmage.
