(August 21, 2019) Female officials throughout Alberta are invited to attend the 4th edition of Create Your Advantage, an all-female refresher course plus development session, scheduled in Edmonton and Calgary next month.

Create Your Advantage (CYA) offers a fantastic opportunity for females officials to come together to build their skillset and achieve their indoor certification in this free, one-day program.

Senior female instructors will lead this program, which includes:

  1. The Indoor Refresher course that all returning indoor referees are required to take. (9 am – noon)
  2. A skill development session which has been created by the instructors with the assistance of the Alberta Soccer Referee Development program (1 – 4 pm)

You may choose from one of these registration options:

  • Bring a lunch and attend the full day (9 am – 4 pm)
  • Come for either just the Indoor Refresher course (9 am – noon) OR the just Skill Development session (1 – 4 pm)
  • Attend in full or in part by registering via Eventbrite AND also attend a regular Indoor Refresher course (which you would register for via your Ref Centre Account)
  •  If you became a new referee in the Spring of 2019, you are welcome to attend CYA in full or just the morning or afternoon session of the program, but you will still need to attend an indoor conversion course  to be eligible for indoor games.

There will be two course options available:

  1. September 14 in Edmonton, West Soccer Centre (17415 – 106 A Avenue)
  2. September 15 in Calgary, Mount Royal University Recreation Building (4825 Mt Royal Gate SW)
