Small Sided CLINIC (New Referees):

The Entry Level Referee Clinic is the entry point into 11 a-side soccer. Once an individual is successful in passing this clinic they will be classified as a Youth Referee (if they are 14 or 15 years old), or a District Referee (if they are 16 years old or older). The goal of this three day clinic is to ensure that individuals are capable to be either a referee or an assistant referee in 11 a-side soccer. Individuals that complete 10 games for COYSA will have a portion of their registration fee reimbursed at the end of the season. These referees must attend an annual 3 hour refresher which includes a fitness test element. Instructions on how to register for a course can be found <HERE>
