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.
