About BC Soccer Referee Program

The BC Soccer's Referee Program exists to support and foster the development and education of referees from the grassroots to elite levels of refereeing throughout British Columbia.

The goal of BC Soccer is to provide member referees across British Columbia with the tools necessary to help build the future of soccer in British Columbia and to development referees.

If referees strive to be successful they will need more than law interpretation skill and experience; although these are both indispensable. Being a successful soccer referee is about personal desire towards continuing education and learning about the game and the Laws which govern it.  

The BC Soccer Referee Program needs to be a shared and cooperative program with a proactive vision for the betterment of the game. Ultimately, OUR success will be measured by the growth of the game, at all levels, in British Columbia.
