Match Officials

There are more than 30 games a week on our fields, and Uxbridge and Scugog referees are out there, rain or shine, making sure everyone stays safe, has fun and learns the rules of the game .

Each year we recruit new referees of all ages (13 - Adult) to join our team. Refereeing is a great way to stay in shape, watch some great soccer and have a great part-time job. 

Regulations require that the minimum age be 12 years old as of March 31 and that every referee be at least 2 years older than the age group for which they are officiating. Because of this, we are particularly interested in hearing from teens 14+ and adults interested in officiating.


we are recruiting now for new referees 


Each year the Club attempts to carefully gauge how many new referees we need on our call list. Our goal is to achieve a balance so that every official on our list has an opportunity to work weekly and to also ensure available officials for our busy game schedule.

Please complete the information form below and we will contact you to provide information about registration and training procedures and dates.

Registration must be completed  April, 2022 to allow time to complete the independent online training and on-field practical session between February - May, 2022.
