Dear National Referees:
Please note this important information about the upcoming training session in California:
For everyone attending session 2, February 7-10, 2008:
Corporate Coach Charters will be providing the bus service from LAX to the Marriott Torrance hotel on February 7. Please go to the area outside of the baggage claim area and look for a green sign that says "Long Distance Buses and Vans" - this is where you will be picked up.
The buses will be ready to begin pick ups at 10:15 a.m. The buses will be sitting in the staging area. Please call Corporate Coach (after you have picked up your luggage and have proceeded to pick up area) so the drivers can be instructed to move to the pick up area._ The number is 800-452-2622. Each bus will stop at all terminals. The buses will make round trips about every hour until 5 PM.
If you are coming in late due to flight delays, or had a flight change, you can call Corporate Coach at 800-452-2622 to let them know. Please be sure to mention that you are with the US Soccer Federation. There will be no U.S. Soccer representatives at the airport this year.
After you check into the hotel, go to the U.S. Soccer Referee office in Salon A to pick up material you will need for the session. The office will open at 2:00 p.m. Dress for the Thursday evening session will be business casual. Jacket and tie is not required. That session begins at 7:00 p.m. Official Sports International will be set up in Salon B, beginning at 12 noon. They will have a gift for you, so stop in to visit them before or after you pick up your material at our office.
We look forward to seeing you there.
