Referees

NSC  provides referees for Academy games and for travel team games scheduled at home. The referee program is critical to NSC’s success. The program also provides an opportunity for children to grow into being a referee.

For some, it's their first regular job during the school year. For others, it's an opportunity to develop leadership skills ... taking charge of the game, making quick decisions, instructing younger players on proper techniques and rules.

Learning to referee comes both from formal orientation/training sessions and "learning by doing" with more experienced referees.

If you are a 12 years old or older and want to referee for the upcoming season, you will need to take a certification course. You do this by going to here and looking on the left for certification courses under "Become a Referee" and then choosing the course that suits your schedule. There are two grades of referees: Grade 9 is the introductory level, and allows refs to officiate In-Town intramural games. Kids must be at least 12 to take this class.

The next level is a Grade 8, which allows officiating at all recreational level games (which includes our travel games). A child must be 16 years old, OR have had a Grade 9 license for at least 2 years.
