MESSAGE FROM PCSRA PRESIDENT

Hello All,

The following clinics have been scheduled in Pierce County Soccer Referees Association for this summer.  Any referee candidates can register and pay their fees at this website:

https://www.wareferees.org/

After registration, they can complete their online lessons (18+ need to complete SafeSport also) and then they can access the clinics to make their choice. The clinic info is attached above.

The summer field clinics are shortened to 3 ½ hours on the field.  The field clinics have a maximum capacity of 32 candidates.  The hosting club/Assignor has the option of possibly adding a second clinic the same day at the same site if the first clinic fills up.

I know you all have heard me talking about the referee shortages.  This is happening sport wide and nationwide.   Just a comparison;

In 2016, Washington State had 6,020 registered soccer referees at all levels

In 2019 (pre Covid), Washington State had 5,681 registered soccer referees at all levels

As of June 2021, Washington State has 2,600 registered soccer referees at all levels

It is critical that we find players and parents that can step up, get registered, and get out on the field enforcing safety and fair play to our players.

I have also included a .pdf handout for your club/coaches to use if they wish.

Thank you all for your hard work in helping Pierce County continue to be soccer strong!

Scott Webster
PCSRA President
