In our continuing efforts to provide more accessible training opportunities for all of our referees, assessors, instructors and administrators, NISOA is partnering with United Educators to bring you training covering several officiating topics.
NISOA, the leader in college soccer official training and education, is providing its membership with a new opportunity to access a variety of on-line training modules. Members can access the NISOA on-line training portal with a few clicks for access to five training modules that include a module that focuses on NCAA rules changes, official training power points, the refresher test and a refresher test review in power point format.
NISOA members work college contests involving mixed gender crews or games of different genders from their own. It is important to recognize the circumstances that could be interpreted as sexual harassment. It is equally important to know how and to whom those situations must be reported. It is for these reasons that NISOA has taken a bold and aggressive step to address two topics of national concern, diversity and sexual harassment. In that regard, NISOA has chosen to require your participation with a training module that focuses on these two topics.
