Become a Referee


Becoming a Match Official

If you’re someone who is passionate about the beautiful game of soccer, wants to give back to the community, and looks forward to a new challenge, then consider becoming a match official. At Brams United, we offer mentorship and education sessions during the summer and winter seasons to help encourage and support new match officials! This is a great way to keep active, continue being involved in soccer, learn how to work in a professional manner, and also earn a little extra pocket money~
