Class registration for new referees will be unavailable beginning May 1 as we change over from the 2021 to the 2022 registration year. We expect the 2022 registration system will be available by May 14, and new referees who complete the online training and field session will receive a 2022 referee badge after July 1.
Online training and field sessions for those who register by April 30 will be available through May 31. New referees who complete the online training and field session by May 31 will receive a 2021 referee badge at the field session. These referees will need to pay the 2022 registration fee and complete a recertification clinic before December 31, 2021, to receive their 2022 badge.
The MDCVASRP Policy Manual received significant updates in April 2021. Look for it under the Resources tab.
On Monday, April 26, at 7:00 PM, National Officials JC Griggs, Nick Seymour, and Andrew Charron will discuss game expectations and match control. Learn about how to manage the game, deal with mass confrontation, and more! The presentation will be about 45 minutes followed by an opportunity to ask questions.

Annual Training Required
SafeSport training for adult referees does not run concurrently with your referee license - it expires one year from the date you most recently completed SafeSport training.
Referees with expired SafeSport training are disqualified from officiating, so complete the free 20-minute online refresher before your SafeSport expires to maintain your referee license.
Referees turning 18 this year will complete the SafeSport core course online after their 18th birthday....

Thanks Don for your many years of service as the SDA and for continuing to serve and mentor DCV referees.
