Chilliwack FC hosting clinic for new officials

Potential 11-a-side referees will be drilled in the basics of soccer before potentially appearing on a field near you.

Chilliwack FC is offering an entry level full-field referee clinic in late November.

Open to potential officials 14 years and older, the clinic will run over three days (Nov. 20-22) at Twin Rinks.

The goal of this clinic is getting officials ready be either a referee or assistant referee in 11 a-side soccer.

This is done with experienced referee instructors who use video educational material and practical on-field sessions.

The topics covered include, but are not limited to, the laws of the game, positioning, signals, administration of the game, pre-match preparation and match reporting. Those who pass the clinic will have their first year’s registration free.
