Community Soccer League is looking for referees!
Lakeshore United will be hosting virtual soccer referee training prior to the fall season. Upon completion of this free course, attendees will be able to officiate Community Soccer league games in Cedar Grove – Belgium, Elkhart Lake, Howards Grove, Kohler, Manitowoc, Oostburg, Sheboygan, and Sheboygan Falls.
This course is recommended for all new and returning referees. We introduced a lot of play format and rule changes this past season especially for grades 1-4. Part of being a good official is to engage in constant reviewing of the rules and reflecting on how to improve.
*Individuals must be at least 13. Adults also needed.
*Most Community Soccer League games are Saturday mornings
*Season is September 11 – October 30
*Season includes the Community Soccer League tournament October 1-3
Becoming one of our Community Soccer referees is a great opportunity for youth and adults alike. In addition to getting a unique perspective on the game, referees gain valuable leadership experience and get paid for doing so!
With flexible scheduling, referees can officiate as little or as many games as their personal schedules allow.
Virtual training will be held 8/16/2021 from 6pm to 9pm.
If you are interested, please pre-register at the link below and the details for the Zoom meeting information will be sent to you.
