Becoming a WMSC Match Official

WMSC is looking for match officials for the 2019 Outdoor Season!

For those looking to become a match official, you will need to begin by registering for a match official certification course offered by any soccer club in Ontario.

Waterloo Minor Soccer Club will be hosting both the Small Sided Game and Entry Level match official courses.

SMALL SIDED GAME COURSE – February 17, 2019 RIM Park

The Small Sided Game Course is for those who would like to become an accredited match official on 7v7 games and are 12 years of age (by March 31st of the current year) or older. Successful graduates are automatically registered with Ontario Soccer and do not have to register again until the following year. For step-by-step instructions on how to register, please follow the ‘Course Sign Up Guide’ below.

ENTRY LEVEL COURSE – February 9 & February 16, 2019 (both days) RIM Park

The Entry Level Match Official Clinic is for those who would like to become an accredited match official for 9v9 and 11v11 games and are 14 years of age (by March 31st of the current year) and older.
