We are in desperate need of referees. You must be 13 years old to take the referee clinic. The clinic is done all on line now with a field session to be scheduled after taking the on line clinic. We will reimburse the fee for the course after you start refereeing. Please consider becoming a referee. The pay is good and if you only did one game a day, it would help us out. Please contact Michele Watson 940-704-3207 or 940-691-0254 if you plan to register and for more information.

Referee meetings will be held at 6:30 pm every other Monday night starting Monday, August 28th, 2023 at the GWFSA Soccer Office, 5401 Southwest Parkway, Wichita Falls TX 76310. All referees should attend!

If you are a new referee and want to sign up to work games, contact Claude Miller 940-733-5099.
