June 2010 Instructional Articles

Published on June 4, 2010


The June 2010 edition of soccer referee instructional articles is now available. This month we are including articles for the intercollegiate referee, the interscholastic referee and in Nuts and Bolts articles that address those basic techniques, procedures, practice alternatives, and skills that are often forgotten or overlooked while going through the experiences of soccer refereeing.

Intercollegiate Referees

This thirteenth issue of our monthly NISOA column presents two additional continuing education articles intended to help our NISOA Intercollegiate Referee members develop the skills, information and techniques needed to improve their refereeing for the nation’s Intercollegiate soccer game.

All articles are authored by Intercollegiate Soccer Referee-oriented colleagues from around the country who share their experience and expertise in this specialized skill. The aim of NISOA is to create a continually growing base of personal development resources to help all Intercollegiate Soccer Referees reach the level of personal excellence they have set for themselves.

Our authors this month are:

1. John Van deVaarst, NISOA National Clinician, whose article “Violence in the Game” discusses how to deal with the ever increasing amount of violence in intercollegiate soccer.

2. Rodney Kenney, NISOA National Clinician, whose article “Making the Assistants Better” discusses the impact of the assistant referee and how the officiating team can be more efficient and consistent.

3. The NCAA with a reprinted summary of the 2010 NCAA Men’s and Women’s Soccer Rules changes.

Interscholastic Referees

This fourteenth issue of our monthly column contains two articles designed to serve as part of the expanding reference resource of continuing education materials to help the Interscholastic Soccer Referee improve field performance and development as a qualified NISOA Interscholastic Official. All articles are authored by Interscholastic Soccer Referees and selected writers who have experience in high school officiating, instruction, assessment, and administration.

This month’s authors include:

1. John Van deVaarst, NISOA , whose article, “Reminders About the Caution and Disqualification” reminds officials about how to properly deal and report misconduct.
