Thanks again to everyone that is doing matches in District 1 and also for BSC. 

It will be at the SFYS league office. 

So why came to these meetings, and what do we do at these meetings 

We can all learn from each other a thing a two, from the events that happen at the field each week.

We want to hear about the Good, Bad and the Ugly that happens at the matches each week. So we can make things better for everyone 

Get feed back from you on, who you feel should be the youth and adult referees of the years this season.
You can also sign up for extra matches just for showing up. 

Earn points good for referee gear. 

Have some fun and do some video training. 

Hope to see you at the meetings we will be having this season.
