Haverford Soccer Club Information Letter for Referee Classes
Each year Haverford Soccer Club hosts as Grade 8 and Grade 9 ref certification classes. These are not school grades, they are the national / international grading system for Soccer Referees. These classes are hosted by HSC, not taught by HSC. Classes are taught by www.epsarc.org and a full listing of everyone’s classes is on their site.
The Grade 9 class is a 7 hour one day introductory class designed for recreational league play. Most travel groups will allow a grade 9 to be an assistant referee but not a center. A grade 9 is the standard level for our kids starting out refereeing in our small sided games for rec league at the Haverford Soccer Club.
The Grade 8 is a harder introductory class, but no pre requisite is required. The Grade 8 will allow you to ref recreational and travel games. .
Haverford Soccer Club will offer a 100 % refund up to three weeks ahead of the class. At that point the EPSARC trainers lock in the number of students for the class.
