Referee Information:

UMSC recognizes and values our referees! Without our amazing referees there would be no games and we rely heavily on them in our outdoor and indoor seasons. 
If you are looking to become a referee, Unionville Milliken Soccer Club hosts an Entry Level Referee Course in the spring for those aged 14+ and a Small Sided Game Course for those 12+ looking to become a referee. We will post these courses on our website, Facebook page as well as Twitter.
UMSC's Club Head Referee is Henry Helou, a respected referee who also mentors and supports referees at UMSC. Henry can be reached at: info@u-msc.com
