Becoming a WMSC Match Official

WMSC is looking for match officials for the 2018 Outdoor season! Competitive level exhibition games will begin taking place in April and both competitive and recreational level seasons have kicked off for summer 2018!

For those looking to become a match official, you will need to begin by registering for a match official certification course offered by any soccer club in Ontario.  Once certified you will be a registered match official with Ontario Soccer and have access to RefCentre in order to be scheduled Rep/Competitive games.  In order to officiate WMSC Recreational games, you will need to apply to be a match official through Power Up.
