Referee Development & Courses

Referee Development

Passionate and committed referees are an integral part of any soccer club and Port Coquitlam Euro-Rite F.C strives to educate our referees on how to be the best referees they can be. Our brand new mentorship program will help new referees get the confidence they need in order to move up in the referee pathway.

Our goal is to provide all of our referees with the resources and support they need to continue being consistent and confident referees.

As of July 30, courses are filling up and there are no wait lists.  If a course is full, please check again in case someone cancels their spot.
