2017 Entry-Level Referee Course

WCCYSL will be hosting an Entry-Level Referee Course in August. Those who successfully complete the course will earn their Grade 8 license, which will allow them to referee matches. To pass the course, candidates must attend four evening classroom sessions (6:30pm to 9:30pm) and a field session on a Saturday morning (9am to 12pm). After attending the training sessions, candidates will be required to pass an exam to earn their license. These sessions will take place on the following dates:

  • Classroom Sessions (WCCYSL Clubhouse) – August 15, 17, 22, and 24
  • Field Session (location TBD) – August 26
  • Test (WCCYSL Clubhouse) – August 29

At the first classroom session, each candidate must pay WCCYSL $125 to cover the cost of her/his uniform and first-year registration. Payment will be returned to those who do not pass the course. Referees who officiate 15 or more matches for WCCYSL within a year will receive a full refund for their uniform and registration payment ($125).   Candidates must be at least 14 years of age and have prior experience playing soccer.
