Soccer refs needed

AGNEW — A field clinic for potential youth soccer referees will be held at the Agnew soccer field from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 28.

Referees ages 13 and older are in high demand across the state and on the North Olympic Peninsula.

Registration for new referees is a two-step process.

The first step is to take the online course on the Washington State Referee Committee website at Click on “I want to be a referee” and follow the directions. The test must be completed by Wednesday, Aug. 25.

Once potential referees have passed the test, then they will sign up for the field clinic.

The U.S. Soccer Federation registration allows referees to officiate games around the state and to register with the Washington Officials Association, which governs high school officials.
