House League Game Coordinator / Referee (GC/R) Clinic

The LVR Soccer club runs a soccer league for girls and boys teams, ages 6 through 8. This "House League" play involves small-sided games with three to five players on the field with no scores or standings.

The House League program includes a Game Coordinator / Referee (GC/R) position. The GC/R performs many duties of the typical match referee, but the orientation is to provide new coaches, players and their families with a game-like experience that introduces them to safety considerations, concepts of sportsmanship and an introduction to a modified set of Laws of the Game. During the game the GC/R will stop play for fouls, but primarily provides instruction to players about how the game is played.

Ideally, the GCRs are three years older than the players, so the program is open to youths age 9 and older, but exceptions are considered. Come join the fun!

***Updated 9/3/18****

Due to a large number of returning youth referees, we do not expect to bring on any new referees this season. We encourage kids age 14 and older to go straight to the Seattle Soccer Referee Association to get certified and start refereeing.

Starting the first weekend after Labor Day, House League games are played on both Saturdays and Sundays through the end of October. The number of new teams determines the schedule, but in past years game times on Saturdays were 9:00AM, 10:30, Noon, 1:30, 3:00 and 4:30. Game times on Sunday are 11:00AM; 12:30 PM, 2:00 and 3:30. The length of games vary with age, but all games are less than one hour. As you might note, Saturdays have double the number of games than Sundays, so working back-to-back games is mostly a Saturday event. Referees are required to check-in 10 minutes before game time; we observe a five minute grace period then a slot may be re-assigned to another referee.
