Referee Courses are now open for registration.
SMALL SIDED – The Small Sided Referee Clinic is the basics of refereeing and is offered to individuals who are no less than 12 years of age. Once an individual is successful in passing this clinic, they are classified as a Small Sided Referee and may officiate in matches with players between U-6 and U-12.
The updated Small Sided Referee clinic will focus on the latest Small Sided Rules teaching materials, and delivery of the clinic has been revised to consist of (two) 2-hour Zoom sessions, (one) 2-hour on-field session; followed by an online exam.
Small sided course 1 – Zoom sessions on May 10 and May 17 from 7pm-9pm each day. Field session to be announced once they are permitted.
Small Sided course 2 – Zoom sessions on May 24 and May 31 from 7pm-9pm each day. Field session to be announced once they are permitted.
ENTRY LEVEL COURSES – The Entry Level Referee Clinic is the entry point into 11 a-side soccer. Once an individual is successful in passing this clinic they will be classified as a Youth Referee (if they are 14 or 15 years old) or a District Referee (if they are 16 years old or older). The goal of this clinic is to ensure that individuals who pass are capable to be either a Referee or an Assistant Referee in 11 a-side soccer.
The updated delivery of the current Entry Level Clinic has been revised to consist of 17 online self-guided Law-based modules and questions via RefCentre (approx. 10 hours), one 2.5-hour theoretical Zoom session, followed by an online exam, then one 3.5 hour on-field session, . Students will be given a minimum of 7-days to complete the online training.
