The first step for those who 14 years of age or older and are interested in refereeing 11-a-side soccer is to enroll and complete an Entry Level Referee Clinic. 

For those who are 12 and older and are interested in refereeing small sided soccer (less than 11-a-side) the first step is to enroll and complete a Small Sided Referee Clinic
