Soccer Nova Scotia will be hosting a Female Referee Development Seminar on Saturday, March 4.

This seminar will bring together female referees, coaches, and professionals from across Nova Scotia. The seminar is free of charge to participants.

Christina Oakley, Provincial Instructor, will be the moderator and lead instructor for the seminar.  The seminar begins with a series of guest speakers from the soccer and sports communities who will be presenting on female growth and development in sport.  Participants should be prepared to talk about personal goals and learn new skills through classroom education sessions and on-field training.  Referees should also be willing to build new relationships with other females in our Nova Scotia referee and soccer communities.
