Referee Education

2019/20 Laws of the Game

Mobile App Laws of the Game

To note: WC Surf SC has programs that are locally, regionally and nationally governed.  The Laws of the Game, and modified rules, are then applied to various age groups in our recreation and competitive programs.  Not all age groups have the exact same Laws of the Game or rule modifications.  Check with your Coach or email us if you have questions.

And be sure to THANK A REF when you are out there this weekend!
COMMUNITY SERVICE REMINDER
As a gentle reminder, please be reminded about posted signs while visiting our local schools and city parks.  Thank you for your cooperation and support.
Parent Sideline (Education)
Our intention of this section is to offer resources to our parents on methods, ideas, and stories about great ways to be a support while enjoying how your son or daughter plays this beautiful game!  The groups listed have no association with our club, yet we find them informative, helpful, and impactful.

Check the links out at your convenience and explore the wonderful world of the soccer sideline and how to further support the players, coaches and referees of our club.
