Being a Referee is a great opportunity to be a role model to our youth and earn some extra income.
There are 3 levels of referee opportunities
- Small-Sided Games Referee (U6-U10). Referees must have turned 12 by September 1 of the current year, and have completed the relevant referee training program.
- Entry Level Referee (U6-U15). Referees must have turned 14 by September 1 of the current year, and have completed the relevant referee training program and/or attended the annual Refresher Course.
- District Level Referee (all amateur matches). Referees must have turned 16 by September 1 of the current year, and have completed the relevant referee training program and/or attended the annual Refresher Course.
Port Moody Soccer Club does not use referees for our U6 and U7 divisions, and requires referees to be a minimum of 2 years older than the age of the players in the match they are refereeing. This does not apply to Assistant Referees.
Please contact the Referee-In-Chief should you be interested in officiating this season.
Once we have determined the number of referees required this season, interviews will be held in August. Each applicant will be contacted by telephone. Once you have been approved to officiate for our club, we will cover the cost of the course, and a referee jersey/equipment will be provided. It is the responsibility of all referees who have already acquired their entry level certification, to renew their certification each season (at their own expense).
BC Soccer & the Port Moody Soccer Club would also like to make all referees aware of the Playing Environment which is shown below:
