Referee Training Events - Information Sheet

WHAT: Our annual Referee Training events are now open for registration! NEW this fall, WUFC & CUSC are partnering to host a series of events offering multiple opportunities for referees who wish to gain more experience prior to the start of the fall soccer season. These events are a fantastic way for USSF certified referees to improve their skills in a focused, friendly, and fun environment. Our staff of referee mentors have designed these events based on the key technical elements of the game; flag & whistle mechanics, pre-game & game responsibilities, dealing with problem coaches-players-parents, better understanding of key laws of the game (LOTG), and much more. (Both clubs will reward referees with game credits towards your loyalty bonus. This translates into more money earned during the fall season. Attend 1-3 of these events for more details.)

WHO: These FREE events are open to all USSF certified referees, grassroots level and above, who are interested in officiating with our WUFC & CUSC organizations. Referees are open to attend any or all these three events regardless which club you are affiliated with.
