Game Officials

VanU runs clinics for those who want to become game officials (referees and assistant referees) once a year. Information is sent directly to members or will be published on this page. To referee small sided games (U9 and U10) you must be at least 12 years old to take the Small Sided Games course. You can also be an assistant ref (linesman or lineswoman) at this age once you've taken the same course. To be a game official for U11 to U18 games you must take the Entry Level Referee Clinic.
