Soccer Referee ProgramReferees Needed!
Refereeing is a crucial element of any sports program and there are many opportunities for YOU to be a part of this important role with RAGE.  Refereeing is a fun and rewarding way to be directly involved in providing a positive soccer experience for the young players in our community. Our local referee association (PSRA) provides all the training and tools you’ll need.

Recreational Referee Coverage by RAGE Age Group
U5-7: Games are officiated by two volunteer coaches on the field.  This allows direct instruction and coaching to be provided to our youngest players.

U8: Officiated by two volunteer parents or coaches on the field.  Referees at this age group continue to explain game rules as needed, but should not coach players during the game.

U9-10: Officiated by three Grade 9 (or better) certified Referee volunteers.  Rage requires at least two Grade 9 (or better) referees to be provided by each U9 and U10 team.

U12-19: Typically officiated by three paid Grade 8 certified Referees.  Grade 8 is a more advanced certification than Grade 9.  Grade 9 Referees can also request paid U12 and U14 Rec games.
