Association Meetings & Continuing Training

Association meetings will restart in March.  Dates will be established in conjunction with BYSL schedules to assure that all referees who are also players and coaches can participate.

It is critical that you attend as many of the SRSOA meetings as you can. Even the most experienced refs learn something from every meeting.
