A BC Soccer entry-level referee clinic is coming to Courtenay in November, and participants 14 years of age and up from the Comox Valley and Campbell River are welcome.

“I’m calling on both teens and adults, who love the game, whether or not you are still playing, to consider registering for this BC Soccer entry-level clinic,” said Stu Power of the Referees’ Association.

“There is always a need for new blood and fresh legs in the refereeing world, so it would be terrific to see some of our adults with a passion for the game learning alongside some of our enthusiastic youth participants, what enjoyment can be gained from knowing the game on a whole new level. Please consider giving back to the game in this most vital of roles,” Power said.

The clinic dates are Thursday, Nov. 22 (6-10 p.m.); Friday, Nov. 23 (6-10 p.m.) and Saturday, Nov. 24 (9 a.m. to 5 p.m.).

Clinic location is at the CVUSC clubhouse on Lerwick (between Valley View and Isfeld schools). Cost is $129.25, and successful local youth participants will be refunded the $50 membership fee by Comox Valley United Soccer Club.

To register go to www.refcentre.com/bc, use “club search” and click on Comox Valley. For more information, e-mail Power at visranorth@shaw.ca. “Hope to see you on the field,” Power said.
