BIFC Seeks Referees
As our programming expands - BIFC will be entering teams in the BCCSL this upcoming season at Under-13 level - we are in need of referees. The Club fully covers the cost of certification and pays each referee a stipend for each game they officiate.
The Club currently has six referees at the Small-sided level (U9-U12) and we are actively looking to add referees at both the Small-sided level and the Entry Level (U13 - U18). We currently have no referees at the Entry level and each game at U13 requires a referee and two ARs.
BIFC has partnered with BC Soccer to set up a certification process for both Small-sided and Entry-level applicants. All those interested must be able to attend the webinars (zooms) scheduled as well as the on-field component. Adults are also welcome to register.
