When referees first start out with our WUFC Recreation league in the fall, they will begin officiating as an AR (assistant referee otherwise known as linesman) for 9v9 games. It is rare to begin as a center official until a referee first gains experience.
Lots of orgs will host “new referee classes” to provide additional training to set up young/new referees for success. If you are associated with WUFC, you will receive an email about this as long as you register to referee for WUFC.
You will need to designate a couple hours searching through Oregon Soccer Central to familiarize yourself with where things are located including the process for how things work.
If you have any questions, please contact Heather Combs.
