Referree Information

Check with our Referee Coordinator at before taking the referee course to see if we are accepting any new referees for the season.

A Referee Refresher Course will be held - TBD 

Outdoor Season 

  • Fort Saskatchewan Soccer assigns a Referee and two Assistant Referees for U-14, U-16, U-18 home games.
  • One Referee is assigned for U-10 and U-12 games.
  • The Community league season will run from April 30 to late June.



The City of Fort Saskatchewan determines when soccer fields are open. During heavy or prolonged rain, play is not allowed on the fields.

Please refer to the "Rain Out Numbers" tab for City of Fort Saskatchewan rainout information.

If conditions are too wet/dangerous and the city has indicated the fields are closed, you are not responsible for showing up at the game, and you will not be paid for it.

In some cases heavy rain or lightening can occur after 3:00 p.m. In this case only the referee can cancel the game, therefore both teams have to be present at the game and await the referee's decision. If the fields are deemed unsafe due to heavy rain you may decide to cancel the game.

Rained out games will have new referee assignments.


Your Schedule

You will be scheduled according to the dates that you indicate you are available.

If You Cannot Make it to Your Assigned Game

  • If you are unable to fulfill an assignment, you are responsible for finding a replacement for yourself and notifying the Fort Sask. Referee Coordinator as to the change.
  • A list of all the other referees registered in Fort Sask. is available from the Referee Coordinator or the Fort Sask. Minor Sports Association office.
  • Your replacement must be your age or older, and must have attained the same level of refereeing (or higher) as yourself.
  • Referees are not permitted to referee another family member’s game.


What to Wear

Referees and Assistant Referees are expected to dress appropriately at all games. Referee Jerseys must be worn over coats/sweaters (not under). Black shorts and socks are required. Community League referees may wear black track pants in cold weather if desired.

What if You Have a Problem?

If you have a serious problem with a coach, player or spectator, it is important that you make note of the situation as soon as you are able to. Put your concerns down in writing, with as much detail as possible, and email it to or bring it to the Minor Sports Association office at your earliest opportunity. Fort Saskatchewan Outdoor Soccer will then be better able to deal with the issue, and get it resolved quickly.  We will not tolerate abusive behavior towards referees.

How You Get Paid

Referees are paid once a month for indoor and bi-weekly for outdoor. Payment is based on the signed games sheets you turn into the Fort Saskatchewan Minor Sports Association Office. Cheques will be mailed to you.

Rain out games - you will not be paid for these if the fields have been officially closed. Rained out games will have new referee assignments.
