    Become a Referee

    The Skagit Valley Soccer Referee's Association (SVSRA) was incorporated as a non-profit organization in 1994 for the purpose of representing, controlling, promoting and teaching soccer refereeing within the association. We also try to unify referees in our goals of promoting soccer refereeing in the greater Skagit Valley. We hope to provide means for our members to improve the quality of soccer refereeing, and foster pride and cooperation within our membership.

    We will try to post information about upcoming Referee clinics here as we find out about them.

    -- Skagit Valley Soccer Referees Assn. will be hosting a New Referee Clinic to train/certify new referees this summer. The clinic will be held on 19 August 2018 in Mount Vernon. If you ever had any thoughts about becoming a soccer referee, then this is where you get the training to start out.

    If you have attended your kid's game and watched the coaches act as Referees, it is because we need more active Referees.

    Perhaps you have attended games and thought "boy, that ref made some terrible calls...I could have done better than that". Well, we would like to offer you the opportunity to do exactly that.

    Perhaps you have had to attend multiple games, with spare time in between, and wondered "Gee, how am I going to kill 2 hours before the next game?". Well, if you were a referee, you may not have to wonder any more (and you could end up getting paid for the wait).

    Is your youth soccer player looking for a great way to earn some money, while learning the game that they love from a whole different perspective? Becoming a soccer referee offers a way to do this, and still maintain a flexible schedule for school and playing for a club.

    We really do need more active referees. We prefer that kids be at least 12 years old when taking the clinic (mostly due to the vocabulary / reading level required to read "Laws of the Game" and understand the questions asked on the exams). Of course, we always welcome more adult-age referees too.

    You must pre-register for this clinic. Click on the link below for details.
