How do you become a soccer referee? Visit the Washington State Referee Committee website ( and find an entry level clinic. The registration cut off date is typically a week before the clinic, however a clinic may fill up prior to the registration deadline.  There is also 3-5 hours of online training that must be completed before the in person clinic.  You will register for these online lessons first.

Note: If you don't plan to referee prior to Fall Soccer we recommend you take a clinic in July. Clinics held prior to July 1st provide certification for 2023, those held after July 1st will provide certification for 2023 & 2024.

How old do you have to be?  You must be 13 or older to register for a clinic.  The recommended minimum age is 14.
