Referee Training

Santa Monica Region 20 periodically offers referee training courses.  Every Fall season we offer Regional Referee Courses for the new volunteer. In addition, we are hoping to put together an Intermediate Referee Course and possibly an Advanced Referee Course in the late Summer/early Fall. Keep tabs on our Referee Training Course Schedule for upcoming referee training courses in and around the Los Angeles area.

Note:  all Region 20 volunteers/referees are allowed to attend courses in other regions as well.  Region 20 will reimburse course fees.  Keep a receipt and submit it to the Regional Treasurer.
