RE: High School - Varsity High School

Dave Jones of JOHNSTOWN, PENNSYLVANIA United States asks...

I would be interesting in DVDs, interactive CD/ROM or software that might be used for helping educate referees.

I have the DVD titled 'Improving Refereeing Skills - A compilation of programs to support referee training'. This DVD was produced by The FA - Soccer Learning System. This program covers: Match Control Skills, Positioning & Movement, Application of the Laws, Warm Up / Warm Down, & Teamwork. This is a great tool and I'd be very interested in other similar offerings.
