Becoming a Referee for the WSC

670px-Understand-Soccer-Assistant-Referee-Signals-Step-1-Version-2Please note that you have to be (at least) 14 years old to become certified.  The Warwick Soccer Club will reimburse part of the cost associated with your certification and future re-certifications.

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.
