CONCACAF Elite Referees Course 2012

Fifty of CONCACAF's top on-field officials will gather in Florida on Wednesday for the confederation's elite men's referee course, an annual event this year geared to further preparation for upcoming World Cup qualifying and Champions League matches. The four-day combine involving 25 referees and 25 assistant referees will include a fitness test, classroom instruction, as well as technical field sessions at the Kics Sports Complex in Fort Lauderdale (USA). FIFA instructors and former referees Peter Prendergast of Jamaica, Rodolfo Sibrian of El Salvador and Esse Baharmast of the United States will conduct the course with FIFA's head of referee Massimo Busacca and the world body's senior manager of referee development Fernando Tresaco also in attendance. The course will conclude Saturday night with Jamaican referee Kevin Morrison and assistants Ricardo Morgan of Jamaica and Dion Neil of Trinidad - all course participants - officiating the North American Soccer League (NASL) game between the Fort Lauderdale Strikers and RailHawks at Lockhart Stadium. "Our annual elite referee course is a fantastic opportunity to bring the best of the best in CONCACAF together”, said CONCACAF Director of Referee Administration, Brian Hall. "Under the guidance of FIFA's brightest instructors, our referees and assistant referees will have the opportunity to sharpen their technical skills. Additionally, since we will be conducting the FIFA fitness test, we will ensure that all referees are in top-class physical condition".
