BC Soccer Holds Provincial Referee Clinic at the North Shore Indoor Bubble and Richmond Oval

21 participants including 8 observers took part in the three day clinic

Vancouver, BC December 23,2013 – BC Soccer held a provincial referee clinic this past weekend at the North Shore Indoor Bubble and at the Richmond Oval.  Two referee committee members and 21 participants including eight observers took part in the three day course.

“The course was a tremendous success and all of the participants and observers were very engaged throughout the entire clinic,” said Jose Branco, BC Soccer Referee Development Coordinator. “It was amazing experience hosting the course at the North Shore Bubble and the Richmond Oval with such experienced instructors.”

Each of the 21 participants completed comprehensive integrated practical exercises, a fitness test, and a classroom portion which included a video test composing of FIFA Futuro match analysis footage. The practical and classroom components were instructed by Jose Branco, John Nielson, BC Soccer Committee Member and Referee Instructor, with the fitness components instructed by BC Soccer trained Referee Instructors Igor Cvetkovski & Dirk Lange.

Both the classroom and practical exercises encompass rule and rule interpretations as well as player and game management.  The provincial level referee clinic has strong practical portion which helps referees prepare for on field occurrences.

“All of the instructors and participants had a substantial amount of referee experience making for a very informative and engaging clinic,” said John Nielson. “However, even with their experience many of the participants and observers were surprised at both the physical and technical competence needed to achieve the Provincial Referee Status.”

Referees who pass the courses must also pass three on field assessments before being upgraded to a provincial level referee. For more information on becoming a referee please visit:
