Host a Referee Course for Your Club

If your club is interested in hosting an Entry Level Referee Clinic, please follow this set of guidelines:

  • Establish a set of dates to hold your clinic. It is recommended that you schedule your clinic six weeks out in order to get enough students interested in your clinic.
  • Use this link to request for your clinic:
  • Club is responsible to secure a facility. You will need the name and the address of the facility in order to request your referee course.
  • The cost of the clinic is $300 for Grade 8. Your club must issue a check made out to CNRA in the amount of $300. Your check must be mailed out to CNRA (California North Referee Administration) P.O. Box 848 Rocklin, Ca 95677. Please write down your five digits course number on your check. Please note that your course is ONLY approved once CNRA receives your check.
  • Students are responsible to sign up for your clinic and pay the $55 registration fee online using their credit card. If students are not able to use a credit card, then they need to either bring cash or checks made out to your club and then your club MUST issue ONE check for all the students that have not paid online. The club check must be made out to CNRA and given to the instructor of the course.
  • You MUST have a host (a member of your club) present at ALL the clinic hours.
  • The course could be taught in Spanish or Bilingual in English and Spanish and if so desired then that needs to be communicated to CNRA in your “Special Request” section.
  • When requesting a course, you must have the name, e-mail address, and contact phone number of the person within your club that could be contacted by students, CNRA, and instructor.
  • The normal format for this type of course is 3 hours of classroom in two sessions and then 3 hours of field session.
