Referees

For the 2018 Kennewick Grid Kids (KGK) season will be using high
school aged youth, ex-KGK players, adults, and certified WIAA officials. For some youth officials, this will be their fourth year of officiating, while for others it will be their 1st year. In either case, with training and practice, we believe KGK officials will continue to deliver well officiated game to support the development of the KGK football participants. We hope that youth officials will be able to also learn from their WIAA certified counterparts.

The organizational structure has been modified for the 2018 season in that there will be only 6 organizations as it was in the previous seasons; however, their will only be 4 squad levels (A through D) maintained. This means that there will only be 12 games on a given weekend, as opposed to 15 games last year.  There will also be the addition of games against the Richland Jr. Bombers organization. With these changed we think you will see that there will be plenty of
opportunity to work and we will again look to balance the opportunities for all officials. We will give priority to returning officials to officiate in key positions as we train newer officials.

Listed below are the activities to be accomplished in preparing for the 2018 season:

  • August 25th – Expectations, responsibilities and Game Rules Training (2 hours) - 10a-12p at Eastgate Park
  • September 1st – Expectations, responsibilities and Game Rules Training (2 hours) - 10a-12p at Eastgate Park
  • September 8th - Officiate during our league wide Jamboree. To be considered for week one, this is a requirement. The schedule will come out soon for that. - 10a-3p at Eastgate Park

In order to be eligible to officiate game this year, you must have complete one of the training sessions on August 25th or September 1st. In the event that you have an unavoidable conflict, we will work with you to supplement these training opportunities. However, it may not be able to be accomplished prior to the start of the regular season weekends.

We hope you are excited to work and develop this season.
