Referees Needed!

In order to assure that there is a full crew assigned to every match for our soccer club, we need more referees. Adults: this is a great way to spend time with your kids while making money!

The Minnesota State Referee Committee has made some changes to the new referee process:

  • All new referee requirements can be completed ONLINE at MinnesotaSRC.com 
  • There is no in-person clinic!
  • You can complete the process at your own pace, all online. 
  • New Referee certification is good all the way through December 31, 2021 (as is any certification done earlier in 2020).

 
You can earn anywhere between $25-$70 a game.
 
Refereeing is a great way to stay active and involved in the game. 
 
If you have any questions, please contact either Bill Garner or Tyler Dalsin, ESC's representatives at
MAT Assigning, and/or visit ESC's Referee webpage.

ESC Implements Zero Tolerance Policy on Referee Abuse

This policy has been developed to address the growing (and unfortunate) trend of referee abuse in youth sports, in general, and youth soccer, in particular.  Our policy, as set forth in the document below, is simple: Any physical or verbal abuse of referees is as unacceptable as physical or verbal abuse of players.  It is never acceptable for spectators to criticize referees, verbally or otherwise, at an ESC event.

See the link below to view the new policy in it's entirety.
