RULES AND SCORER CLINIC REQUIREMENTS FOR JUNIOR CLUB COACHES
2016-17 Coaching Requirements [ Coach-Player Officiating Clinic Instructions ]
Each team must again have a minimum of 2 certified player referees and 2 certified scorers. It is recommended that each team also have 2 certified line judges. Certified players will be noted on the roster when the certification requirements have been completed. Only the certified players may officiate during the team's assigned officiating time. It would be beneficial to all teams to have more than the minimum number of stated officials.
FOR 2017 SEASON ONLY
The 2017 season is the second of a two year rulebook cycle. There are no new rules for the 2017 season. Therefore, any Junior member who took their Rules and Scoring clinics last year and are marked as current in their membership record will have those certification(s) extended by one year. You will not have to take the clinic(s) this season. Anyone who did not complete their clinic(s) may complete them this season. All certifications from last season and this season will expire October 31, 2017.
