How To Become A Referee

Each winter (beginning in March), the Markham Soccer Club (MSC) provides a training program that includes preparation classes and dates for the Ontario Soccer Association referee certification course.  All referees who officiate in MSC games must have successfully completed both components.

Only referees wishing to referee games for the Markham Soccer Club should attend the preparation classes. Referee who fulfills their minimum game requirements with the Club as either a middle referee or assistant referee (six small-sided games or eight junior/full field games) will have their course fees reimbursed at the end of the summer season.
