Referee Development


Coquitlam Metro-Ford Soccer Club Referee Development Program 2016/17

The Referee Development Program at CMFSC is set-up to offer a structured support network to aid new and existing referees in our club improve their officiating. Today’s successful referee places a strong emphasis on fitness training and FIFA laws knowledge. They are always looking for ways to improve their performance both on and off the field of play. This is the approach we will encourage our referees to strive for at CMFSC.

The CMFSC Referee Development Staff will structure a program that offers support through field side mentoring, field training, and educational sessions. The corner stone of the program is the mentoring team assembled to offer guidance to our grassroots referees. The interaction of mentor to official is critical for positive development in refereeing. All club referees will have access to field training and education clinics to help reinforce correct application of FIFA Laws and game knowledge through shared experience.
