The Cal South Referee Program’s goal is to create and grow a qualified and well-trained group of referees. These referees will be instructed at and held to the highest standards with the intent of maintaining a safe and enjoyable playing environment for Cal South members of all ages and skill levels. Cal South referees will thoroughly understand and appropriately apply the Laws of the Game.
The Cal South Referee Program strives to actively recruit, develop, certify, and advance referees for all levels of play.
