Referee Classes

Cal North Area 4 Referee Association


Each local league sponsors courses during the year. As they are scheduled, information will be posted on the Clinics web page. The local league pays the cost of the clinic, purchases the books, and obtains and pays for the facility. The district assigns the instructors. For more information or to sign up, contact the local league.


Jack London Youth Soccer Sports League (JLYSSL)


JLYSSL volunteer referee coordinators organize multiple certification clinics each year to provide our club members with the opportunity to receive referee instruction and obtain their US Soccer Referee License. This satisfies one of the requirements for a team to participate in JLYSSL programs.
