CSAN offers Spanish language referee registration assistance

As some of you know, California North Referee Administration (CNRA) has, under pressure from the Referee Department of US Soccer, now switched to using the US Soccer “Digital Learning Center” for the purposes of referee registration in northern California.  This online training and registration system is:
  • New to all re-registering and first time registering referees;
  • Of medium difficulty from the perspective of online software;
  • Particularly difficult for native speakers of a language other than English who also do not have a lot of experience using the Internet.
   To help overcome these issues, CNRA has provided our office in San Francisco with several laptops that can be used in the office by referees and potential referees to work their way through the US Soccer Digital Learning Center to renew or get their referee license.  Rocio is herself a licensed referee and not familiar with the Digital Learning Center and its Internet interface.  She is willing to assist Spanish speaking referees with this process.
    If you know of any Spanish speaking Bay area referee or potential referee who wishes to renew or obtain a referee license, feel free to have them call and negotiate an appointment to see Rocio at the office.  (Rocio has volunteered to assist, but will want to fit it into her work and volunteer activities schedule.)

CSAN ofrece asistencia para el registro de árbitros en español

Como algunos de ustedes saben, la Administración de Árbitros del Norte de California (CNRA), bajo la presión del Departamento de Árbitros de US Soccer, ahora cambió a usar el “Centro de aprendizaje digital” de US Soccer para fines de registro de árbitros en el norte de California. Este sistema de capacitación y registro en línea es:

  •     Nuevos para todos los árbitros que se reinscriben y los que se registran por primera vez;
  •     De dificultad media desde la perspectiva del software en línea;
  •     Particularmente difícil para hablantes nativos de un idioma que no sea inglés que tampoco tienen mucha experiencia en el uso de Internet.

Para ayudar a superar estos problemas, la CNRA ha proporcionado a nuestra oficina en San Francisco varias computadoras portátiles que los árbitros y los árbitros potenciales pueden usar en la oficina para trabajar en el Centro de aprendizaje digital de US Soccer para renovar u obtener su licencia de árbitro. Rocio es ella misma una árbitro con licencia y no está familiarizada con el Centro de aprendizaje digital y su interfaz de Internet. Ella está dispuesta a ayudar a los árbitros de habla hispana con este proceso.

Si sabe de algún árbitro del área de la bahía que hable español o árbitro potencial que desee renovar u obtener una licencia de árbitro, no dude en pedirle que llame y negocie una cita para ver a Rocío en la oficina. (Rocio se ha ofrecido como voluntaria para ayudar, pero querrá incluirlo en su horario de trabajo y actividades de voluntariado).
