How do you become a soccer referee? Visit the Washington State Referee Committee website ( and find an entry level clinic. The registration cut off date is typically a week before the clinic, however a clinic may fill up prior to the registration deadline.

Note: If you don't plan to referee prior to Fall Soccer we recommend you take a clinic in July. Clinics held prior to July 1st provide certification for 2019, those held after July 1st will provide certification for 2019 & 2020.

How old do you have to be? While the clinics are recommended for ages 13 and up, there is no minimum age. Our club has hired referees as young as 12 for the U8/9 games at Lochsloy.
