Tips, tricks and traps

Soccer Referee

Thanks to Chris for this information on being a referee in WA is at “”: It’s not a detailed website, so the basics are:

* U-10 is the first year that games have refs, and a ref has to be at least 2 years older than the players, therefore a ref must be at least U-12.
* There is a Grade 9 certification that is an entry level for kids, and a Grade 8 if they want to ref older youth games. (and then Grade 7, 6, etc.)
* A ref takes a Grade 9 or 8 class and test to become certified. Every ref must be recertified (take a test) every year.
* ALL classes are listed at under Instruction, and then Clinics.
