DSC (Diagonal System of Control or 3-man System) clinics available through Vermont USSF.
Below is the link to the Vermont Soccer Association Webpage for Referees. On the page there are links to the dates they have available for recertification and certification courses with locations and how to register.
If VSOA members want to join the USSF Vermont referee group, they will have a couple of options.
1. If any VSOA member has been a USSF referee in the past 5 years then they can register to take a Recertification Course
2. If any VSOA member has never been a USSF referee or it's been longer than 5 years, then they will need to register to attend a Referee Grade 8 course.
Other websites that you might explore for training purposes: ussoccer.com/referees, fifa.com refereeing page, nisoa.com (has excellent video clips), Bigsoccer.com Referee Forum, soccerrefereeusa.com, and askasoccerreferee.com. Remember that these sites focus on FIFA Laws or NCAA rules.
