Referees Returning from Fall 2023:

Referees who refereed for Hendricks Community Soccer in Spring 2023 will be eligible to referee again in Fall 2023. Returning referees will be required to attend one of the HCS Returning Referee Meetings.  We will have two meetings available to choose from:

  • March 16th, 2024, 11:00am to appx 12:30pm.
  • April 6th, 2024, 10:00am to appx 11:30am.

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 2023, you will receive an email from our Referee Director 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 to let us know you wish to referee again in the following season.

Returning referees need to fill out the HCS Fall 2024 Referee Contact Info & Waiver Form.

If you are a returning referee, but you did not referee in Fall 2023, you will need to take the New Referee Training Class in order to referee for Spring 2024.
