Mini, Youth & Senior Soccer Referees
Your contact for any issues regarding refereeing in our club is the Director of Refereeing also known as Club Head Referee (CHR).
Referee Certification & Registration
Every referee in our club must be registered with the Ontario Soccer Association – check the OSA website for process and timelines.
The MSA is hosting a CSA District Entry Level Referee course this spring. This is a 16-hour course with 4 hours on field; the course is divided into 5 sessions. Participants must attend all sessions at the Milton Soccer Centre. To register, click here and select “Milton Academy” in the first drop down box “Search by club”.

Game Score Reporting
As a referee, you are the one who holds evidence of a game played and are asked to report the score of a game. Click here to report a game score.
Assignments & Players Discipline
Our CHR will assign games to you. We are moving to an on-line assignment system and you need to register with the system. Contact the CHR on how to do this. It is your responsibility to inform our CHR two weeks in advance if you cannot make a game. You will receive the club’s policy outlining your roles and responsibilities via email.
Before each game, please check the Player Discipline tables to make yourself aware of current yellows and reds.
You must be at your assigned field least 15 minutes before the game. Check field locations here or ask the CHR.
Ensure that you are using the proper pay sheet to record your games. You need evidence of your game in form of a game slip (minis) or game sheets (youth and adults).
You must report cautions, dismissals, and special incidents. If you are reporting referee assault (hopefully not in our club), write down whatever you can, get witnesses and their telephone numbers and contact the CHR immediately. Involve the police, if the assault is serious.
