Soccer referee clinic coming in the spring

Calling all teens and adults who love the game of soccer – consider registering for a BC Soccer entry level referee clinic.

“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 enthusiastic youth participants,” said Stu Power.

“Many past participants have observed that a sense of both enjoyment and satisfaction can be gained from seeing the game from this brand new perspective and, at the same time, helping to ensure that the games are able to continue.

“We hope to attract adult and youth participants alike, as the game continues to grow in our Comox Valley. Please consider giving back to the game in this most vital of roles. Enjoy some exercise and earn some pay in the process,” Power said.

The clinic is for those 14 years and older. It runs April 7-9 at the CVUSC clubhouse on Lerwick (between Valley View and Isfeld schools). Cost is $129.25, and successful CVUSC youth participants receive a referee starter kit, supplied by the Comox Valley United Soccer Club.

To register, go to refcentre.com/bc, click ‘search by club’ and then ‘Comox Valley.’

For more information, contact Power at visranorth@shaw.ca or 250-339-6256.
