The Suffolk County Soccer Officials Association is an organization in which its members officiate boys high school soccer games throughout Suffolk County. We are in need of increasing our membership and are asking your cooperation in publicizing our two clinics for prospective officials.
The first clinic will be held at Westhampton Beach High School located at 49 Lilac Lane in Westhampton Beach. The dates of this clinic will be June 5 through June 9, 6 to 8:30 p.m. each evening.
The second clinic will be held at the John D. Danzi Physical Fitness Center at St. Joseph's College in Patchogue. Access to the center is located on the eastbound Sunrise Highway Service Road, east of Waverly Avenue. The dates of this clinic are June 12, 13, 14, 19, and 20 from 6 to 8:30 p.m.
The cost of the clinic is $100. After attending one of the above clinics, a person will be certified as a high school soccer official. New officials start at the junior high school level which at the present time pays $67.50 per game and after meeting certain criteria, can work their way up to the varsity level which presently pays $104 per game.
Should anyone have any questions, they may contact me at 878-6378 or clinic instructor Larry Datz at 806-1303. Additional information is available on our web site at www.scsoa.org.
