Fall 2017 Referee Information

Referee clinics for the Summer of 2017 have been scheduled (see below).  These are the clinics you will need to take if you want to work in the fall as a new referee.  If you’d like to gain a better understanding of the laws of soccer, earn a little bit of spending money, or do both, please consider registering.  Players and parents age 12 and above are encouraged to attend.  Our local recreational leagues usually pay at least $12 per game for assistant referees and $20 for the center referee and increase from there.  Select games pay more, but your ability to do select games is limited as a grade 9.  Grade 8 referees are qualified to do any select game, and adults and high school students are encouraged to start by taking the Grade 8 class.  Grade 9 classes are directed toward those who want to officiate recreational games, and the Grade 8 classes are directed toward those who want to officiate competitive club games.  You can register for a course using the following link:  The clinic schedule for the entire state is posted at, and instructions for registering can also be found there.

All clinics will be held in the Lecture Hall in the Science Building at Thomas More College.  If you have questions as to the location once you sign up, please let me know.

As always, more classes can be scheduled if demand is there. Please contact me if you are interested in hosting a clinic for your organization. The schedule is as follows:

One-day Grade 8 Entry Level (online cousework required prior to class): Saturday, July 15, 9 am to 6 pm
Grade 9 to Grade 8 Bridge Course: Sunday, July 16, 9 am to 6 pm
One-day Grade 9 Entry Level: Saturday, July 29, 9 am to 6 pm
One-day Grade 8 Entry Level (online coursework required prior to class): Sunday, July 30, 9 am to 6 pm
