EMSA Mini Referees courses

The Alberta Soccer Association (ASA) does not offer indoor courses for ASA Mini Referees. EMSA has offered courses to ASA Mini Referees in the past. Unfortunately, ASA has made a decision that for the 2021-2021 Indoor Season Mini Referees cannot officiate. Therefore, EMSA cannot offer any indoor courses for ASA Mini Referees this season.


EMSA AR (Assistant Referees) courses

EMSA ARs are not able to be involved in the indoor program.
