WSSC Is Growing With Stouffville
Stouffville is growing rapidly with thousands of new homes and many new businesses. There is good reason to believe that Stouffville’s urban population is currently doubling over four short years. That type of growth requires a lot of planning and increased participation.. Since the community’s continued health and success depend upon many services, the providers must grow their services at a similar pace. This is a challenge not only for the Town, but also for its many service providers like the Whitchurch-Stouffville Soccer Club. WSSC is a proud member of the York Region Soccer Association (YRSA) and the Ontario Soccer Association (OSA).
WSSC’s “Growing With Stouffville” initiatives will allow it to grow as the Town grows. Increasing the number of referees for our player expansion, is one of those initiatives. Have you ever considered becoming a soccer referee? Here are a few important things to consider.
Referees must be 14 or older as of March 31, 2017 and can expect to referee one or more games per week. Fees paid vary from $25 to $60 per game for games lasting from 60 to 90 minutes.
Refereeing is Rewarding
Refereeing organized sports contributes to the well being of the community and its members. By refereeing, you help participants grow as individuals and as team players within a healthy lifestyle. The positive results from this are truly rewarding to the referee.
Yes, you did read this correctly! Referees do get paid for their work. All that is required, for those 14 or older, is for you to attend an Entry Level referee course and to then perform your duties as a referee for the Whitchurch-Stouffville Soccer Club.
Refereeing allows you to exercise in the fresh air while you are enjoying yourself, helping others and earning money all at the same time. Can it get any better than that?
There is much more to refereeing than just enforcing soccer rules on the field of play. It also involves the art of handling players in the midst of competition. These “people and situational skills” will help you through the rest of your life.
So, why not give it a try? There’s so much to gain and nothing to lose.
