Mid Isle Soccer Call for Referees

To help keep and attract referees the executive have decided to pay for Referee courses and refresher courses each season.  Wages will also see an increase this year as another incentive to referee with Mid Isle.  Typical Referee kits are supplied to each referee and after showing a strong commitment to refereeing for the season an extra kit of jacket and pants will also be supplied. 

Graduating referees can also apply for the newly established Referee Bursary to be given out at the end of the season.

Anyone interested should contact Aaron Lafontaine – Referee coordinator at refmidisle@gmail.com.
