Letter from the EGSC Head Referee
Hello and welcome to another fantastic season of EGSC soccer.
My name is Chris Teal, and I am the new Head Referee for the Club. I look forward to meeting and working with all of you this season.
We have a number of things being prepared for this season, starting with registration of returning referees as well as our Small sided course for new refs who are 12 years old as of March 31st, 201
, and the Entry level course for new refs who are 14 years old as of March 31st, 201
or returning small field refs who are old enough and ready to progress to the large field. You will be seeing information on these courses shortly on the website and via email.
We are also putting together a number of sessions and resources to help all our referees with their development and get us all ready for the coming season. Check the website and your emails for more details as they are made available.
Anyone interested in becoming a referee with the EG Soccer Club is welcome to apply!
Soccer is a lot of fun, and another part of being involved in the game is refereeing. If you are at least 12 years old as of March 31st 2017,
enjoy soccer, can communicate with kids and adults, and are fit enough to keep up with the game, you might want to consider refereeing as
a way to earn some money and keep active in the process.
Anyone who is 12 years old by March 31st is eligible to take the Small-sided course and officiate Mini field games. Anyone who will be 14
years old by March 31st is eligible to take the OSA Entry level course and officiate Full field games.
In addition to the courses, referees have the opportunity to take part in pre-season and in-season education sessions, get practical on-field
coaching and mentoring, and receive support and feedback about their performance.
Refereeing is a challenging job, and isn't necessarily for everyone, but offers new opportunities for responsibility, teamwork and leadership.
If you would like to know more about becoming a referee with the EGSC, please contact Head Referee Chris Teal at email@example.com for
more information and clinic dates.
