Play. Inspire. Unite.
The Ontario Soccer Match Officials Development Program team has been working diligently towards a solution that will benefit all Clinic Hosts and Participants for the 2020 Clinic season given the current COVID-19 pandemic that is having an affect on all of us. As such, all accreditation will be moving to an online delivery method.
Program staff have been in communication with the District Associations, Clubs and Hosts over the past week and Ontario Soccer has concluded this is the best option for the 2020 Accreditation season.
Material for the online delivery is currently in development and work will continue through the next week to establish the most effective and efficient process.
Practical components will also be re-aligned to fit into this new delivery structure and this will be announced in concert with the launch.
Due to this shift to online accreditation, the Host will no longer be required to provide an in-class facility or a Host representative.
Student registrations will still be collected by the Clinic Host.
The process for applying to host a Small Sided, Entry Level, Mentor Accreditation or Small Sided Assistant Referee Clinic remains the same, through your RefCentre administrator account.
We are also in the midst of defining the process of registrants being contacted by Ontario Soccer to access the online sessions. The clinic host will be responsible for ensuring all contact information is completed for each registrant.
More information and details regarding the timing and launch of the Online Clinics will be provided Friday, April 3, 2020.
If you have any further questions, please contact Nicolas Motta Silva, LTOD Administrator.
