Club “Mod” Referee (U08/U09)
In 2013 the club established a program to give 11-13 year olds an opportunity to learn how to officiate U08 & U09 games. The games for these two age groups are interclub (against Ballard, Queen Anne, & Lake City club teams), where each club is responsible for providing trained/mentored referees to officiate games conducted on their home fields. The goal is to see those kids continue on to officiate U10+ games (scheduled & managed by SYSA, with officials assigned though the SSRA) as well as extend their referee credentials to high levels.

What if your game has no assigned Referee?
If a referee from WSC or another club is not provided for your game, identify a willing and capable volunteer, such as a parent or older youth, for this task (It is recommended that the coaches do not referee their own games). This allows the coach to focus on coaching.
