South Fraser District Association
South Fraser District Association will be launching a program via Zoom called, "ASK THE REF'. We will be doing our first session on Monday, October 19th at 7:00 PM.
The program will be an open forum for discussion for all club executives, coaches, players and parents to ask the referee panel any questions related to the laws of the game, how to address concerns or issues.
Pretty much anything related to the beautiful game is on the table. We are hoping that each month people can feel free to share the good, bad and not pretty issues/concerns they may have with the officiating in our district. We want to use this as an educational and learning tool for our officials. Constructive feedback that we can share with our fellow officials and help them grow and develop their officiating skills.
