Referees Wanted

We currently have a major shortage of qualified referee’s in our club and community. Becoming a referee is a great way to learn the game of soccer and earn extra money while having fun. Becoming a referee is also a great way to teach your children the correct rules.

We are currently seeking players age 13 and up, parents and coaches to take the Referee Grade 8 Entry Level state certified referee course.  The course consists of an online educational module & test. After the successful completion, the student will be a certified USSF Soccer Referee.

As a State Certified Referee, you will not be limited to refereeing only at Belleview Soccer Club games; you will be able to referee anywhere in the state.

If you are interested in becoming a referee please contact:
Rhonda Link-Cummings – rlc1016@aol.com or 352-875-3002
