  3. Encourage all player/refs to referee as many games as possible to meet the GHTFA requirements for the next level. This will ensure our league provides adequate Hd referees for the future.

·         Comments may include that while we realize many are there to get level one as mandatory for their teams, we really do need people who want to referee more, and progress to levels 2 & 3 …otherwise we will not have enough head referees down the road

·        Contact other player/refs certified from our website to request their services (Emergency List provided)
