-The respective divisions are numbered, with "1" being the top level for each division.
-Washington Youth Soccer has two divisions. RCL is the top division, NPSL is the lower division.
-PSPL has three divisions. They are (high to low): Super/Premier, Classic, and Copa.

Local Training
SVSRA is implementing supplemental website-based training for Referees. Some training will be required in order to work matches in our area (LOTG updates are an example). Other training will be optional. However, Referees who choose to do the optional training will get priority in match assignments. Referee Assignors will not be overriding the self-assign rules for a failure to complete the training.

See Referee>Training for details and to get started.
Changes to the "What's New" Page
In case you have missed it, changes have been made to this section. The "What's New" segment on the main home page is now separate from the "What's New" segment on the Referee page. Some items may be displayed on both segments. Many items will only appear on one segment.
Please check both segments when you visit the site and after logging in.
