Dates are set for the 2015 Referee Development Academy.

Friday night July 24 we will begin the opening session at 7pm and conclude before 10pm.
Saturday will begin early with the USSF interval fitness test being run in 3 groups with the first group beginning warmup at 7:00am.
Then Saturday afternoon we have invited Pete Jaskulski to join us again. The survey results from last year were overwhelmingly positive. Our referees wanted to learn more about his concepts of verbal defense and communicating under pressure. So we will use a new interactive format to take what we learn from Pete in the classroom and deploy it on the field. We will spend an hour in the classroom then the next hour outside on the field running drills that practice what we just learned.
Sunday we will serve breakfast from 8am to 9am and then clinic from 9am to noon. RDA adjourns at noon on Sunday, July 26.
The provided meals will be served in the cafeteria and they are: Saturday lunch and dinner, Sunday breakfast.
