Our New Referee Coach/Mentor Program

After a year in development you are invited to look at our new Referee Coaching and Mentoring Program. This new program will address both aspects of referee development; group coaching and individual one-on-one mentoring.

The program’s purpose is to identify young referees, assist them in developing their knowledge, skill and experience and prepare them, upon attaining legal age, to qualify for and enter our already successfull Referee Academy Program.

Our recently appointed State Director of Coaching and Mentoring, Tim Geis, presented the Program during the FSR 2015 AGM, in Sunrise Florida. You may view his presentation…(Here)

New Look For Florida State Referees

During this administration, Florida was one of the first states to consider and implement “Online Registration” to be followed by “Online Course Scheduling” and now “Online Education” for all members. We have come a long way since the old times, listening to you and the sport we serve in an attempt to constantly improve our services and make the delivery of annual in-service requirements much easier.

Please feel free to explore our web site by using the menu on the left. You will be able to find all kinds of information from how to “Become A Referee”, getting the name of your local Referee Administrator, what is the “Referee Academy” and most important of all, how you are going to become a referee and how to meet your “Annual Recertification” requirements.

In our quest to always be on the forefront of our sport, FSR has entered into a number of cooperative relationships with other states willing and able to cooperate with us in implementing our constantly evolving vision. This change in policy has already proven successful. A few years back FSR changed its appearance and the way we will be implementing our referee development and providing services to the sport.

First, you will notice by visiting our home page at http://www.fsr-inc.com that it has a new look and feel. A constantly evolving dynamic page, it is intended as your “Gateway” to everything FSR has to offer. We will be constantly improving on that as we are planning some more changes to make this page friendlier.

The menu button titled “Member Login to the Secure Server” highlights our intent to maintain the outmost security and protection for our data. We have accomplished that in partnership with LeagueGM. This is your secure portal for updating your personal information, registering for all courses, both physical and virtual (online) and for accessing your personal record within FSR.

There are many more improvements to come. Until then, thank you for supporting FSR and our sport.
