    MONTEGO BAY, Jamaica – A six-day FIFA Futuro III referee course for technical and fitness instructors concluded on Wednesday in Jamaica.

    The conference attracted 33 attendees (24 technical instructors, 9 fitness instructors) from seven CONCACAF member associations (Canada, Cayman Islands, Guyana, Jamaica, Suriname, Trinidad & Tobago and the United States).

    With the purpose of creating consistency in instruction and interpretation, the event is one of three conducted annually throughout the Confederation sponsored by the FIFA Referee Assistance Program (RAP).  The others are held for CONCACAF’s Spanish-speaking member associations and the smaller Caribbean countries.

    FIFA’s Fernando Tresaco steered the program in Montego Bay, while Peter Prendergast (FIFA RAP) and Hector Vergara (FIFA Referee Committee) led the technical instruction.  Alan Brown (FIFA RAP) and Erick Samayoa Cute (FIFA RAP) provided guidance on fitness.

    A distinctive feature this year was the Introduction of new digital platforms to help generate more efficient ways of instructing and testing referees.  Additional items requiring thorough review included the latest concepts on education and assessment, the expanded on-line database for use in preparing teaching materials, plus the updated FIFA Fitness Test Requirements.

    CONCACAF Vice President and Jamaica Football Federation President Captain Horace Burrell launched the gathering by welcoming the participants on behalf of CONCACAF President Jeffrey Webb.
