New Referee Training Class

Update: The training clinic date has been changed to Aug 23rd.

ESC will host a training class for new referees (09 clinic) on Saturday, Aug 23rd. We are looking to train new referees who already have some knowledge of the Laws of the Game, have an assertive personality and attention to detail, and will be available to referee ESC games.

Minimum age to attend is 11 but we also need more adult referees! Referees are paid for each game depending on position (center or line) and age group of the teams.

This 09 course consists of online videos on Laws of the Game which you must view online prior to the class, two 3-hour long classroom sessions, and a 50 question test.

To become an ESC referee you must be interviewed and approved before attending the course. The club will reimburse you the $60 fee if you complete the course. Please email headref@enidsoccer.com if you are interested in getting qualified to referee this season.
