OVERVIEW:  PLEASE READ THIS before reviewing the information below. There are four different categories of clinic and test materials located below.
            Categories 1 and 2 are for referees that are CERTIFIED or want to become CERTIFIED  to officiate SRVA tournaments, usually as a paid referee in SRVA tournaments or as an adult player.
            Category 3 is for adults who want to become CERTIFIED as scorers.
            Category 4 is for junior clubs who want to train their coaches and players to be QUALIFIED to officiate during SRVA tournaments when your team is assigned to work as the officiating team.

            You will note that the NewRef 11-12 clinic is used for both new adult referees in category 1, and for junior coaches and players age 15 and above who want to be Qualified to referee at junior SRVA tournaments. It basically is an upgraded version of the clinic used last year.
            The junior coaches and players seeking only to become QUALIFIED  to officiate in SRVA junior tournaments are NOT REQUIRED to take the test or obtain ratings,  just as has been our prior practice.
