Education Sessions:

With several new officers this year, the education sessions will emphasize major programs and cover the basics of membership in NMYSA.  We will review several of our new programs, including: ODP Summer Nights Program, the Small Sided Games Referee Course, trends in Coaching Education, Parent Education and Concussion Awareness. We will have special presentations on Coaching Education, the Club Reg online registration system and a referee assignor clinic.   Travel, Risk Management, insurance, ODP Training and Identification Opportunities and special programs will be covered during the morning and at lunch.  More details about the education sessions will be available in late June.

Referee assignor clinic:

The New Mexico State Referee Committee is conducting a (free) referee assignor clinic in conjunction with the AGM.   This clinic will be held at the Courtyard.  There is no AGM registration fee for participation in the assignor clinic.  Your candidates for this class can sign up at the NMSRA website -- http://www.nmsra.org/clinics.htm, or follow the links from the referee tab at www.nmysa.net.


There is no registration for the AGM, but we would like to know who is coming.  The registration form is linked below.
