Participants will be eligible to officiate ASC In-Town games (Grades 2, 3 and 4) this Spring.

In addition to this course on March 4th, all ASC In-Town Referees will be expected to attend the Spring Pre-Season Referee Meeting at the end of March. Date and time for this meeting will be announced by email and on the ASC website.
Before registering your child for this course, please ask them if they are interested in officiating games. Space is limited and we would like to be sure that those who sign up are interested in refereeing for ASC.
When entering the T-shirt size for your child, please consider that it will have to be worn over clothes when it is cold and fit your child for a year. The size you order will be the size your child receives so please be accurate!

Thanks to the efforts of long-time ASC intown coach, Steve McHugh, a town in Zambia recently received a shipment of donated ASC equipment and uniforms. The message from the coordinator on the ground indicated…”the school cancelled classes and it was quite a morning…the soccer games, 3 of them… went on for hours. It turned into a field day for the kids; younger kids were playing games like tag, with sock balls and plastic bag balls. Most of the kids kicked off their shoes and played in socks or barefoot on grassy dirt with stones, etc. The girls played at the level of JV teams – fun to watch!”
