Lightning Safety Policy: The official policy of WYS and NPSL is based on the NOAA recommendations for safety found here:
http://www-mo.weather.gov/safety/lightning-sports . If lightning is sighted and/or thunder heard, practices and games should be paused and all players vacated to a safe shelter. No play should be resumed until both thunder and lightning have passed and been gone for at least 30 minutes.
As the sport of soccer continues to thrive and grow in the state of Washington, so do the demands on our referee pools. The fall is the busiest time of the year with college, club, recreational and girls HS ball all going on at the same time.
Refereeing is a great way for kids to make money and there are games available to officiate year around. Referees select the matches they can officiate from website scheduling systems and set their own work schedule. By becoming a referee now, referees will be able to officiate at the remaining summer tournaments and be ready for the fall league.
To become a referee, you first complete 4-6 hours of on-line training and then attend an 8 hour in-person clinic. The below New Referee Clinics have been scheduled for individuals to become Referees. The cost of the clinic and registration is $73.00. Referees make between $35.00 to $65.76 a game as a Referee and $23.00 to $49.32 as an Assistant Referee. Kids have been able to easily make between $3,500 - $5,500 a year.
Entry level clinics fill up quickly, so register for a clinic at, http://www.wareferees.org/Registration/HowToBecomeAReferee.aspx . Once you have completed the New Referee Clinic, you will need to purchase your start up equipment to start officiating matches.
If you are 13yrs old or older you can earn money as a Referee. You are able to sign up for the locations and days that suits your schedule. There is a major shortage of referee's so once you have completed your course you can start working right away.
Click the drop down menu to the “Become a Referee” tab, and then sign up for a clinic!
The information below is to be used as a guide. Each clinic has its own terms and conditions. Info is subject to change without notice. Please contact the clinic directly to verify all information.
Pre-registration and completion of online material is REQUIRED.
VERY, VERY IMPORTANT: This class has online material that MUST be completed (and this system MUST say ONLINE COMPLETE in green highlight) prior to class. You WILL NOT be admitted to the class if you have not completed the education and the system does not indicate ONLINE COMPLETE. Paper or email proof of completion is not accepted. There are no exceptions.
The HARD CUTOFF is two days before the clinic at 8PM to complete the online material. If you are not 100 complete then you will not be allowed to attend the clinic. Should this happen then you can wait for a later clinic or request your funds be reimbursed.
Accessing the Online Material:
After you have registered and paid for your class, log on and look in the Clinic Reservation box for a button labeled Online Lessons. This button will provide access to the online material. Click on that button and complete ALL modules. Completing all material will take a 2-3 hours, so allow time to complete this. This material contains essential information that is part of your referee exam.
IMPORTANT: Read and follow the instructions CAREFULLY. Do not skip ahead in videos. Failure to carefully follow the instructions or skipping portions of videos may result in you not receiving credit for completing the item.

Please be aware that if this New Referee Clinic is held before July 1, it will provide certification through the end of this calendar year. If it is on or after July 1, it will provide certification for the remainder of this calendar year and through next year.
This class consists of both classroom and outdoor instruction on a field at the complex.
1. Bring paper and pencil for notes.
2. Bring shoes appropriate for light work on the soccer field (cleats not required). And dress for the weather.
3. Bring $10 cash or check for a pizza/pop lunch OR bring your own lunch. Please do bring your own water and snacks for the day.
4:30-6PM is the next step clinic which parents are invited/encouraged to attend along with their new referee. We will cover how to access referee resources, register at a referee association, self-assign to matches, submit a match report, payment, uniforms, etc.
There will be an exam at the end of class which must be passed to earn your license. Pay very close attention to the questions and answers during the online education.
