Recruiting Initiative

Just thought I’d give you guys the heads up on an initiative that rolls out this week designed to recruit new men and women to the ranks of football officiating in Canada.

I don’t know what your numbers are like in the States, but the growth of the sport here in the GWN as left most, if not all local associations short of officials for all levels of amateur ball and it's reached a crisis point in some areas.

So, in conjunction with the CFL, an ad hoc group of representatives from Cdn locals created a simple three page website that will allow those interested to connect with the local FOA in their area and hopefully get started on-field with the little guys and move up the ladder with experience and time.

The site URL will be receiving significant support and on air mentions in CFL broadcasts this weekend, so we’re hoping to garner a goodly amount of names (“leads” as we’re calling them) of high quality potentials.

You can view the site at www.bearef.ca (“Be a ref.ca”). We’ve still got a few bugs to work out today, but we’re pretty much ready to go.

If you have a moment, please check it out….I’d be interested to hear any comments or suggestions you may have.

Thx

The site looks good. Good luck with it. As a critique, I'm not a big fan of the sound effects.

Unfortunately, Rut won't remember what you said about Canada. He makes no secret about not caring about Canada, so I'm not really sure why he even asked.
