Referee Course - Island

Posted by Vince Greco on Jul 14 2015 at 02:53PM PDT

Interested in becoming a referee?
A good way to stay part of the game, make a couple extra $, get some fitness, learn the other side of the game, and show some of the challenged refs out there how to do it.

Follow this link to get signed up through BC Soccer.

VISL will cover half of registration costs for a member when you have completed the course with a pass, and submitted your proof of payment to Treasurer Keith Smith.

As a new ref, you will want to take the following course: Entry Level Referee Clinics

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 three day clinic is to ensure that individuals who pass are capable to be either a Referee or an Assistant Referee in 11 a-side soccer. This is done with experienced referee instructors who use video educational material and practical on field sessions. The topics covered include, but are not limited to the Laws of the Game, Positioning, Signals, Administration of the game, and Pre-Match Preparation & Match Reporting. Successful individuals have their first year’s registration free.

Pre-requisite: Minimum 14 Years old by or on the day of the clinic
Clinic Length: 17 hours
Clinic Time: Friday 6pm – 10pm – Saturday 9am – 5pm – Sunday 9am – 2pm
Clinic Fee: $125.00 (plus a $4.25 user fee / system processing fee)
