Local Referee Associations 

There are local referee associations across Ohio North. Although they are not part of Ohio North SRC, they work with the DRA and the DDI in the districts by sponsoring regular meetings for in-service training and district business purposes, sponsor novice clinics and bridge clinics and sponsor annual referee registration. These groups have their own officers, constitutions and memberships. Referees are not required to belong to a referee association but it is strongly advised as a way to interact with other referees.
