Apply to be a referee by completing this form

The job is typically 2 nights a week and some weekends, but we can work around your availability (number of games available and length of season may vary due to Covid-19 restrictions). The games are mostly in Pointe-Claire. You will be required to pay a $100 deposit which is given back to you over 2 years if you referee a minimum number of games for Pointe-Claire.   You will need to take an Entry-level Referee Course to become a referee, see details below.

The Benefits

Refereeing is an excellent way to view the game from a different perspective. Our referees participate for many reasons ranging from maintaining fitness, staying involved in the game after a playing career, the challenge of climbing the ladder and of course the regular payments that increase based on activity and capability.

The referee community is also a welcoming group of soccer lovers from all backgrounds. Many of our referees remain active due to their friendships with their colleagues.

If you’re looking for community, exercise, a challenge, or merit-based promotions, refereeing is the right choice for you!
