News From The SRA
Welcome to the The Soccer Officials of Tennessee (SOT) website!
The 2018 SOTN Advanced Referee Clinic will be held at Christian Brothers High School, Memphis, TN., on 4 August, 2018.
Our lead instructor will be Rick Eddy, U.S. Soccer Director of Referee Development, and SOTN’s own FIFA referee, Brooke Mayo.
There will be more information pertaining to the clinic including registration, start time and hotel info. Please check the link on the SOTN website homepage for additional info as we get closer to the date. The fitness test will not be conducted.
For the past three years SOTN has held two clinics in different cities. Having two clinics is a large undertaking from both a logistical and staffing perspective.
Going forward the clinic will be rotated around the state with 2019 being held in Knoxville and 2020 in Nashville.
As a reminder, the clinic will be open to all SOTN members but is required of all referees grade 7A, State 5/6. If a referee cannot attend the SOTN clinic I’m able to approve an out of state clinic to count as advanced training for 2019 recertification.
Special cases are officials who will not recertify by taking a run-of-the-mill recert clinic. Special cases typically include officials who satisfy any of the following:
Please go to the following URL for more information and/or to register for 2018(that is, to pay your registration fee(s), to complete your 'paperwork,' and to take the appropriate refresher exam).
Note: If you are a referee who will be upgrading (instead of recertifying) for 2018, do not follow the special-cases instructions for your referee registration. Instead, follow the instructions you have or will have received from Brady regarding how to register as a referee for 2018. On the other hand, if you are planning a mid-year upgrade sometime in 2018, follow the special-cases instructions given at the above URL.
