I want to be a Soccer Referee, Where Do I Start?
Good for you! There are many great reasons to become a referee. For Youth Referees, refereeing is usually the first paid job they will hold, and is a great way to learn responsibility and discipline. The pay rate is competitive and there is simply no better way to earn money than running around on the soccer pitch. For adults, getting involved as a referee is a great way to contribute to the community and to gain a better appreciation of the game of soccer.
Becoming a referee is very easy, just pass the entry level referee class. The class consists of an orientation session, a Saturday all-day classroom session, and a Sunday field session.
