For those younger than 14, we have positions as game coordinators.  The WSC uses the younger age groups for games on Saturdays.  This is a great way to get some experience and to see becoming a referee is right for you.  If you’re interested, please email  mfitzgerald@warwicksoccer.com

Referee Grades

Grade 9 is for recreation games and the WSC also uses them as AR’s (assistant referees) on Travel games (grade 8’s are preferred) assigned by Club Assignor.

Grade 8 is for Travel games, center & AR and can also do our Recreation program games.

Many younger referees start as Grade 9 and then take the one day “bridge” course to upgrade to an 8 when they are old enough.

There is a meeting before each season starts for those interested in applying for the position.  The meeting is typically announced by email to all Club Members.
