The referee corner has been developed as a resource for the referees in our club. Various educational articles will be posted along with some club guidelines and recommendations on various topics such as: certification, laws of the game, etc. Please view the links to the left and below. Thank you.
Referees for the Fond du Lac Soccer Association Rec League and Select League games are required to hold a current certification. Referees may attend any certification or re-certification course in Wisconsin. All courses are listed at wisref.org/referee-courses/all-courses/
As a local option, The Fond du Lac Soccer Association has arranged for one new referee course and two re-certification courses to be offered in Fond du Lac at the Fond du Lac High School.
Registration is on a first come, first serve basis and is handled by the state (not the local club).
NEW Referee Course:
Please note all participants MUST complete an online exam prior to the in-class full day session on Feb 3rd.
Referee Re-Certification Course: (you only need to attend one session)
Please note all participants MUST complete an online exam prior to the half day session on Jan 13th or March 10th.
Please be aware that space is limited and referees from out of town also attend and these sessions will fill up fast so do not delay in getting registered so you don't need to travel to another city to obtain your certification.
The Fond du Lac Soccer Association (and all clubs in the state) are working on continually enhancing our referee training program as well as educating coaches and parents to reduce the amount of negative interaction that can occur during a match to ensure a positive experience for everyone (including the refs) on the field. We know it can be a very tough job at times and do appreciate the great work and effort put forth by our refs.
Interested in becoming a referee? Please check the Certification Page for information on referee certification for (new referess) and annual recertification classes. If you are certified and interested in refereeing this year, please fill out the registration below.
