Entry Level Referee course - new on-line training

Apr. 30, 2020

With all soccer activities on hold right now,  Canada Soccer has revised the Entry Level Referee course to allow it to be completed in part on-line  The Entry Level referee course is the basic course required to start refereeing or acting as an assistant referee in 11/side soccer. The former 16 hour in person course has been split into two parts, a self directed on-line learning module on the Laws of the Game, and a 1-day in person practical and classroom session to be held when circumstances allow. 

The on-line course is now up and running and open to all interested in becoming a referee. It is limited to those aged 14 and over as of April 1st. The NLSA is offering the course free of charge to those eligible to take it. 

This is a great opportunity to learn the Laws of the Game at your own pace and at times that are convenient to you. Players, coaches and others may wish to try the on-line module to see if they might be interested in taking up refereeing, or simply to gain a better understanding of the Laws of the Game.
