The Yukon Soccer Association provides training and certification for soccer officials in the Yukon. Large numbers of referees are needed especially for the Whitehorse Minor outdoor season which now involves more than 70 teams, each playing two games a week. The Yukon Soccer Association meets the demand partly through training youth referees. These young people are usually experienced soccer players with a strong interest in the game. They take part in league play themselves, and officiate for divisions younger than their own. They do not officiate in their own division.
Yukon Soccer Referee Clinics
Clinics for training referees are provided by the Yukon Soccer Association. Youth Referee Clinics are generally held in both April and September.
