2017-2018 Annual Referee Registration
Youth to FIFA Referees
Beginning April 1, 2017, there will be NO annual registration fees to be a BC Soccer Registered Referee. Further, referees who registered for the past season and attended a Refresher Clinic before March 31, 2017 will automatically be registered on April 1st!
Also beginning April 1, 2017, there will be a $60.00 (plus a $4.25 user fee / system processing fee) fee to register and attend the annual BC Soccer Refresher Clinic.
Youth, District, Regional, Provincial, National and FIFA Referees must attend an annual BC Soccer Refresher clinic, to be automatically registered for the following year (April 1-March 31).
Unregistered/Late registration Referees who have attended a 2016 BC Soccer Refresher clinic but have NOT completed their 2016 annual registration (including fees), will need to do so prior to March 31, 2017 to be automatically registered for the 2017-2018 season on April 1st, 2017.
Small Sided referees must log in to their Ref Centre account to complete registration (free), and confirm they wish to referee for the upcoming season; however, are not required to complete a Refresher Clinic.

If a referee wishes to attend a BC Soccer Refresher clinic and has not attended a BC Soccer Refresher Clinic in the past two years, they must apply to BC Soccer.
The application would include proof of successful completion of an Entry Level exam and after the application is reviewed the referee will be classified.
