BENEFITS OF THE GRADE 8 COURSE
You must take the Grade 8 course if:
- You are at least 14 years old.
- You wish to referee small sided games only (typically 6-8 players per team on the field).
- You want to referee small recreational games only. That means that the players did not go through a formal tryout process for the team and the games take place between teams that come from the same town.
- You want to referee only players who are under the age of 14
- You wish to referee full-sided (11 players a side) soccer.
- You want to referee competitive players. That means that you want to referee the higher skilled players, those that have been selected to play for their town, and who will play in games against other towns.
