We have some referee courses coming up if you are interested in reffing soccer and earning some money. We have 3 club referee classes coming up. This class is free to attend and you will get basic equipment like flags, whistle and club referee shirt. If you become a club referee you are able to ref any of our developmental games from U7 to U14 boys and girls. The first 5 games you ref are reimbursement for the class and equipment. After that you will earn money for any games you do. This is a great way to give refereeing a try and see if you like it. If you love it then you can take the Grade 8 referee course once you are 14 years old and start doing competitive games. We are offering club referee classes on the following dates:
Friday January 22, 2016 from 5:30-9:30 PM at the Pride Office
Friday, February 5, 2016 from 5:30-9:30 PM at the Pride Office
Friday, February 26, 2016 from 5:30-9:30 PM at the Pride Office
You will be required to do an online course before you can attend the class at the office. To sign up for one of these classes, log into your Pride account and sign up for From the First Whistle. Once you have completed the registration I will send you the info you need to get started.
We need referees for the upcoming season. If you have ever thought about becoming a referee now is the time to do it.
