If you are a Returning Referee, please click here to be redirected to the Returning Referee Registration and Courses page.
- This is an application process. Due to limited available refereeing opportunities, not all applications will be accepted. If you are not accepted this year, we encourage you to apply again in 2021.
- You must select an Entry Level Course in your Home Region. The only exceptions are Halifax and Harbour East (Dartmouth) as you may select either of those courses if you live in Halifax or Harbour East (Dartmouth).
- You will be contacted one week (minimum) prior to the course start date if your application has been accepted.
