I Want to Referee
Match officials (also known as referees) are important to amateur sport in Saskatchewan. They keep sport safe, fair, and fun. They are knowledgeable, trained, passionate, and dedicated. And, our competitions cannot be held without them.
There are many benefits to refereeing. Refereeing offers:
|A rewarding way to give back to the game you love.
|A great way to stay connected to the beautiful game
|An opportunity for personal growth by practicing skills in organization, time management, conflict resolution, and people management.
|The opportunity to make some money.
|The opportunity to represent your community or province at regional/provincial/national/international levels.
|The opportunity to develop your understanding and appreciation for the game.
|The opportunity to meet new people and find new networks.
|The opportunity to feel good about yourself and your role in the game.
|The opportunity to get physically active.
|A great way to positively impact youth and other community members.
