Welcome to Refereering at Brookside Soccer Club

If you would like to be a referee, you must meet the following requirements:

You must be at least 13 years old as of August 2014. You can also be an adult and referee; in fact we always welcome more grey hair on the referees!

No experience is necessary. We will train you. If you do have prior experience in other leagues, great! However we still would like you to attend the training class so you will understand what makes being a BSC referee so cool.

All new referees must attend the training class that will be held on Saturday, August 9, from 8:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M. The class will be held at UMKC in the Flarsheim Hall building, room 310 (on E. 52nd St. just wast of Rockhill Rd.) Lunch will be provided. At the end of this class, once the test is completed with a passing grade, you will be ready to begin shadowing as a referee for Brookside Soccer.
