Referee Courses

*Please be advised: The health and well-being of all of our members continues to be a top priority as the reports around COVID-19 and its impact on Saskatchewan advances. With that said, all referee development in-person workshops have been postponed until further notice.

Referee Registration

Referees register with their local Member Organization/Referee Association. If Member Organizations collect fees for registration, referees will pay all registration fees to them. Contact your Member Organization/Referee Association or visit their registration website in order to start registering today.
For Member Organizations/Referee Associations wanting more information on referee registration, check out the Participant Registration webpage.

New Referee Course Delivery Formats

Canada Soccer and the provincial and territorial soccer organizations have been working hard over the past few weeks to move to revamp referee education to be more conducive to an online format. We are pleased to announce that the theory components of referee education courses will now be delivered by Google Classroom. The new blended format (online and in-person) will allow participants to cover the classroom component online, at their own time, from anywhere they have an internet connection.
COVID-19 has presented an opportunity to focus on simplifying existing delivery methods and we are looking forward to the changes that have been and will continue to be made for referee courses. We believe these changes will provide both time and cost savings for participants and MO hosts which will benefit the game.

Online (Theory) Referee Components

Member Organizations will continue to recruit future referees as they did in the past, but a 'candidate' referee will register for the online (theory) component of Small Sided Games or Entry Level courses through the Clinic Registration form on their Member Organization's RAMP registration platform. The confirmation email will include a link and code that the participant will use to access the Google Classroom. SSA accredited referee instructors will engage with participants on the Google Classroom to answer any questions that may arise while completing the online component of the course.
