2012 Washington Referee Development Academy

Quotes for RDA

A sincere thank you to the 171 WA Referees who dedicated  a weekend to advancing our skills as officials.  Our focus was on high level concepts of officiating presented by three top national leaders: former World Cup and Olympic FIFA Referee Sandy Hunt, MLS and NCAA Final Four referee Bill Dittmar and USSF National Emeritus Referee and USSF National Assessor Mohammad Zarrabi-Kashani.   Additionally we had a 4-hour communication training workshop led by Rhonda Hilyer.  Time was spent learning our personal style of communicating plus learning how to send and receive messages in a style that will be understood by the recipient.

Date for 2013 RDA is set….July 26-28, 2013 in Ellensburg.

  1. It is necessary for referees to have a skills training to help them become more efficient to their field. Credits should be given to the professionals who give them lectures.
