    Additional Notes for Students Applying:

    ·  These two courses are running at the same time in the same location.

    ·   Lunch, snacks and drinks are your own preference and at own cost.  Due to being in a school, it must be PEANUT FREE.  The group will be canvassed in the morning to determine if some participants would like to order in lunch (eg. pizza, subs or pitas) but optional.

    ·    There will be practical course work done in the school’s gym and you must bring suitable clothes and non-marking inside footwear for gym use.  There is no chance of being outside for this course.

    ·    Referee uniform requirements for the season will be canvassed during the course.  ODSC will be making a group order from our supplier for our Club Members.

    NOTE: Fuller descriptions of Entry Level and Small Sided Soccer Referee Courses are available at OS website (http://www.ontariosoccer.net/referee/referee-courses).  If you need more clarification on which course is most appropriate for you to take, contact our Club Head Referee, Doug Anderson. Feel free to ask questions.
