Become A Referee
Why become a referee?
Because without referees our teams could not play soccer 20 weekends out of every year!
Clippers FC's deep pool of talented referees forms the foundation upon which our club thrives! The simple fact is that each soccer game requires one to three referees to officiate. U10 and older games require USSF licensed referees. Quality referees insure the safety and enhance the quality of the game for the players and families. Games may be cancelled and/or forfeited if licensed referees are not available to officiate. We depend on volunteers to become licensed referees to support the beautiful game in our community!
Team Referee Requirements
All teams, U9 and above MUST have referee(s) affiliated with their team to fulfill the required number of game credits each season for the team to play. Clippers FC referees are volunteers from our parent, coaching and player community. Volunteers as young as age 13 can be trained and become USSF licensed referees.
