For at least the first few weeks of the season, we provide mentoring for the referees that sign up for matches that have a mentor assigned to it. New referees who obtain a license need to get a few games under their belt to develop confidence and experience to successfully officiate matches on their own. Often times a youth referee can have a poor experience and diminish their love for officiating; the mentor is there to make sure that does not happen.
With the expansion of the Mentor Program to our experienced youth referees, Youth Referee Junior Mentors will be able to train their peers; which in turn allows our adult referees mentors to offer intermediate level mentorship opportunities. This will not only help retain new referees but provide a more positive environment for the Players, Coaches, and Team S.T.A.R.s.
Our Senior Referee Mentors are experienced referees that can provide tips on making calls, crowd control, feedback on officiating to make things run more smoothly.
