Free Referee Course for Lexington Adults

The Massachusetts Soccer Referee Committee (MSRC) is offering a free entry-level referee course for adults. We must have at least 10 adults signed up from Lexington to take advantage of this promotion. Please contact Genci Kutrolli, the LUSC referee coordinator, at lexrefereecoordinator@gmail.com if you’re interested or have any questions. Date and location will be determined once we get critical mass. General information on refereeing can be found at https://www.massref.net.

This is a great opportunity for adults to still be involved with the beautiful game of soccer. As coaches, players, or fans on the sideline, you always have an opinion but can’t do anything about it since you don’t have the whistle. Now is your opportunity to make those important decisions. The referee’s decision is crucial to the outcome of the game and therefore having experienced adult referees is very important for our program. More and more kids are playing the beautiful game now and the referee committee needs your help.

LUSC Street Soccer Winter 2015

What is “Street Soccer”? Street soccer is simply “pick-up” games. Games will be played in a gym, not on the street!
 
Focus: Let them play! Escape the cold winter days of New England while exercising and having fun with friends.   
 
Why street soccer? The idea behind street soccer is to provide the kids the freedom to play soccer games in a supervised yet unstructured environment.  The goal is to encourage them to be creative and take ownership of their game.  The games will be played with 3 to 5 players on a side.  This will allow players to maximize their touches on the ball and provide them with numerous opportunities to make decisions.  Games will be 12 to 15 minute long, and then the supervisor will remix the teams and start up a new game.

Note: There will be no coaching, just adult supervision.

Dates: January 4, 11, 18, 25 February 1
Location: Lexington High School Field House
Cost: $65.00 per child

Schedule:

12:00 to 1:00pm – Girls 1st – 4th Grade
1:00 to 2:00pm – Kindergarten
2:00 to 3:00pm – Boys 1st and 2nd Grade
