Entry Level Referee Course
The Dublin Soccer League is in need of youth soccer referees this spring.
Those born in 2005 (must be turning 14 in 2019) and before are eligible to certify. An Entry level course for new referees will be held January 22nd, 24th and 26th (all sessions required) at Cypress Church Dublin Campus, 7055 Avery Rd., Dublin. Click http://www.dublinsoccer.net/wp-content/uploads/2018/12/Entry-Level-Referee-Flyer.pdf for more information.
This is an excellent opportunity for your child to earn some spending money—referee pay rates begin at $10/hr—become more familiar with the Laws of the Game and gain an official’s perspective on soccer. Adult referees are also in demand. Why not certify along with your child?
The course includes three classroom sessions and field training. Cost for the entire course is $70 (due at the first session). Pre-registration is required as is an on-line training that must be completed before the first session. For additional information and online registration visit http://www.ossrc.com/clinics.php.
New referees who complete the entry level course and are interested in refereeing this spring in the Dublin Soccer League must submit a referee availability form by March 15th. The availability form will be posted on the DSL referee page (www.DublinSoccer.net) in early 2019.
DSL will provide new referees who have availability to work at least 4 Saturdays in the spring with a complementary referee kit (including shirt, socks, wallet with cards and whistle and lanyard). The league will also reimburse half of the entry level course costs ($35) at the end of the season for those assigned at least 4 Saturdays who complete all assignments.
Please email DSL at Referees@DublinSoccer.net with any questions.

Heading the Ball Prohibited Under-12 in DSL
Intentional, deliberate, heading the ball during games or practices by players in U-12 recreation programs and younger is prohibited by the DSL, in accordance with US Soccer/US Youth Soccer recommendations and/or requirements.
During DSL games, an intentional or deliberate header will be treated as a dangerous play foul. Referees will award an IFK (Indirect Free Kick) to the opposing team of a player committing the foul. If the referee determines that players from both teams equally created the foul, a drop ball will be performed.
Your safety is our #1 concern
Goal safety: Please remind your soccer player that they should NEVER climb on or hang from the goals.
