Soccer Nova Scotia will be hosting our first Female Referee Development Symposium from October 21 – 23.

This symposium will bring together female referees, and assessors, from across Nova Scotia. The symposium is fully funded and free of charge to participants.

Christina Oakley, Provincial Instructor, will be leading the Symposium.  Christina has gathered a number of female representatives from the Referee World to support participants’ learning and growth.  Participants should be prepared to talk about personal goals and learn new skills through classroom lessons and on-field training.  Referees should also be willing to build new relationships with other females in our Nova Scotia referee community.
