In Kansas, we work to provide training courses from basic to advanced levels, allowing referees to grow over the course of years.  Courses are offered to meet community needs, and in most cases before a season starts. Most leagues have spring & fall seasons. All referees must have a current registration (badge) in order to be assigned games. Registrations / badges expire on December 31 of each year.  Please find the course that applies to you and click the link for current courses in that category.
