This Referee Development Seminar will provide you with a broad understanding of the role, responsibilities, and duties of a referee, as well as refine your sense of right of way, timing, and application of the penalties.

Examiners are experienced referees who are appointed by the Referee Development Committee who are able to give the practical examination for referee certification. Examiners work at the local and regional level to help educate and develop people who are interested in refereeing.
