Referees Returning from Fall 2019:

Referees who refereed for Hendricks Community Soccer in Fall 2019 will be eligible to referee again in Fall 2020. Returning referees will be required to attend one of the HCS Returning Referee Meetings.  We will have two meetings available to choose from:

  • July 18th, 2020, 11:15 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
  • August 1st, 2020, 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

After a short refresher course and some time for a Q&A period, returning referees will take an abbreviated test to re-certify. The ability to referee will hinge upon passing the test with a grade of at least 70%. 

If you are a returning referee who refereed in Fall 2019, you will receive an email from Referee Director, Terence Viefhaus asking if you wish to return to referee in the upcoming season.  Please make sure that you reply to that email (or email him directly at [email protected]) to let Terence know you wish to referee again in the Fall 2020 season.

If you are a returning referee, but you did not referee in Fall 2019, you will need to take the New Referee Training Class on July 25th, 2020 in order to referee for Fall 2020.
