Vancouver Island Soccer for Young Athletes


Refereeing is a great way to earn money and give back to your club during the soccer season.  Referee jerseys and kits are supplied by Mid Isle Soccer.  The minimum age to become a referee is 12 years old (small sided) and 14 years old (11-a-side).  Refresher course must be done yearly.

Small-Sided Clinic: For new referees aged 12-13 years. Referees completing this clinic receive Small-Sided Referee designation and are certified to officiate games up to U13.

Entry-Level Clinic: For new referees who are aged 14 years or older. Referees completing this clinic receive Youth or District designations which allows them to officiate all small-sided or full sided matches as long as the referee is two years older than the players.
