    Becoming a Referee

    Congratulations, and THANK YOU for your interest in becoming a soccer referee.
     
    1. If you wish to receive email notifications about upcoming New Referee Clinics, provide your contact information.
      You MUST be 13 years old to provide this information (although you do not need to be 13 years old to become a referee). If you are younger than 13 years old, please have your parent or guardian complete the online form to provide their contact information on your behalf.
       
    2. OR, join the WVSA Referee Program Facebook Group or Follow @wvsareferees on Twitter.

      • GRADE 7 Referee clinic (16 hours) qualifies you to referee all youth -- both recreational and competitive -- and adult amateur matches
