Welcome to the Essex Referee Web Site

Hello Referees,
Dates for the Winter referee workshops are as follows:
Saturday, January 10th 2015, from 9:00AM to 12:00PM
Saturday, February 28th 2015, from 9:00AM to 12:00PM
The first two workshops will take place at the Polish Club on 12 Cheever St. in Danvers Ma. 01923. We will be meeting in the big function room this Winter
The third and final workshop/meeting will take place on Tuesday, March 31st 2015, Time & location to be determined. This is the one workshop you are required to attend.
For newer referees, you might ask "What's a workshop?" This is an opportunuity to sit in with referees who've refereed for many years, as well as other newer referees. While there, we will go over scenarios and basic information that is crucial to your development, understanding and knowledge of refereeing. These workshops will help you become a better and more confident referee. They are fun and not intimidating.
Workshops also provide you with bonus money. Attend one workshop and earn $1 more for every game you referee in the upcoming year. Two workshops equals $2 more per game. Attend all three and earn $3 more per game.
Please note, the last workshop (On Marchl 31st) is mandatory. If that is the only one you can attend, there is no bonus pay. That said, the final workshop is always the most heavily attended. There will be information at this workshop which will be new and updated. You don't want to miss the boat. If you attend the third one in conjunction with any, or all of, the  others, then the bonuses kick in.
These are not conducted by the state. ECYSA runs these events. There is no charge or preregistration required.
Thank You,
Ben Reed
USSF & ECYSA Referee Assignor
