Welcome to the newly upgraded referee page. It is our intent to make this the "place to go" for all of the information that you need. We will be adding many links in the coming weeks, so check back often. We also want to hear from you on any suggestions you may have.
Eduardo Mier y Teran continues as our Regional Referee Administrator. Supporting him is our Referee Board and Referee Division Commissioners.
It is time to start signing up for games. Referee scheduling remains the same as last year, utilizing the Schedules Etc system. You can click on the following links to get to the referee login page:
Area Q Spring League (March - May, 2012)
When scheduling for leagues that are played across multiple Areas, be aware of the "Right of First Refusal" protocol. See teh link below to access this document.
From 4:00 - 5:00 on each Saturday that we have games, join our "After the Game" session at Peet's Coffee at the UCI shopping center. This is a great chance to discuss any calls that you (or perhaps did not make) with other referee's. Cofee tea and juice are provided.
If you are a first time referee, check out our updated Referee Guide. It will provide you with the core information you need to get you started. Returning referees may find the document helpful too.
While the season has started, many ref's still need to complete training. Your first option is to attend one of the Region 144 classes. Your second option is to attend a class being held by one of the other Regions within Area Q. Your final option would be a class held within another Area. These links should help you out:
