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.

Referee Clinic Updates

Small Sided Referee Clinic (For Ages 12 and 13)

Students seeking to complete a Small-Sided Referee Clinic will continue to register for the Small-Sided Clinic through RefCentre. The updated delivery of the current Small Sided Clinic has been revised to consist of two 2-hour theoretical Zoom sessions and one 2-hour on-field session with a BC Soccer Referee Instructor. Following attendance of all three sessions, students will be provided access to the online Small Sided Referee exam via RefCentre, and will be given 48 hours to complete the exam. Students that receive a passing mark of 70% will have access to print off a copy of their completion certificate in RefCentre. They will receive their Small-Sided Referee badge in the mail approx. 2-3 weeks following the clinic. Participants are required to complete all 3 sessions and exam to successfully complete the Small Sided Referee Clinic.

Entry Level Clinic - For Ages 14+ and Adult (Full sided Game) 

The updated delivery of the Entry Level Clinic now consists of 17 Law-based modules, followed by a 7-hour in person session. Similar to the other clinics, to limit physical interaction, the 7-hour in person session will be delivered by a BC Soccer Referee Instructor through two 2-hour sessions via Zoom and one 3-hour on field session.

Students will register for the Entry Level Clinic via RefCentre. Upon completion of the 17 law-based modules, students will complete the first part of the Entry Level exam. Following this, students will attend the Zoom and on-field sessions and then take the second part of the Entry Level exam. Students who successfully complete the Clinic with a passing mark of 80% or higher will receive their referee badge in the mail.

BC Soccer will provide updated Entry Level Clinic Host requirements (as there is no classroom required right now) in the coming days. To accommodate the revised Entry Level Clinic, updates to the RefCentre platform are still in development. BC Soccer has been advised that the updates are to be completed by mid-October; therefore, will begin accepting Entry Level Clinic hosting request at that time.
