    I just have to wonder if there maybe enough interest to have two camps.I know I have looked every year for the past 3 to 4 years.Why not try and get more people involved Nisoa? I dabble in college football and we have meeting to attend each year. College football let there meeting be open to anybody.Why not open those meetings up to other officiating organization like ussf and high school soccer referees?

      Thank you for your thoughts about additional training camps. NISOA has chapters throughout the Country that conduct several meetings during the year that include training. We are always looking at the possibility of having additional camps. However, budget limitations dictate what NISOA can program. A least 25 attendees would have to be guaranteed to make an additional camp cost neutral. The camp in Elizabethtown is opened to USSF and HS referees as long as they meet the requirements to register.

        I was disappointed to hear that the camp is full. I planned on applying. I would be interested in attending if a second camp is offered. I enjoy officiating soccer very much and would do almost anything to have the opportunity to improve my officiating skills. I am doing very well with US Soccer and officiating at the high school level but there is always room to improve. There are very few opportunities at the local level (whether NFHS or US Soccer) to learn more, be evaluated, etc.

          you are currently on the waiting list and may be considered if there is a change in attendance

            Thank you for responding. Officiating soccer is a passion for me, and there are few, if any opportunities to hone skills, be in the presence of others who are of like mind, etc.
