Pre-registration is required, and it’s all done on-line! Go ahead and register now as spaces are limited.

Entry Level Course
The Entry Level Referee Clinic is the entry point into the Provincial Referee Program. 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 2 1/2 day clinic is, through experienced referee instructors and video, to provide the knowledge of refereeing in all aspects of the game.

The topics covered include, but are not limited to, the Laws of the Game, Positioning, Signals, Administration of the game, and Preparation & Match Reporting. There is a fitness component and a written exam based on material.

Clinic Fee: $125.00 (plus a $4.25 user fee / system processing fee)
