BC Soccer Referee Program

BC Soccer is the body in BC which governs the certification of referees in the province. To referee in the province you must first become certified by successfully completing an entry-level referee course. Certified referees must attend an annual refresher course to retain their status.  Referees who wish to strive to officiate at higher levels are required to be assessed and to complete more referees course. The steps are outlined on the BC Soccer website.

BC Soccer links of interest to aspiring and current referees are listed below.  Links will open in a new window so you will still have access to the BCSRA site.  (Save this site in your favorites!)
