The Respect in Sport (RiS) Program has been an integral part of creating a safe and respectful sport environment for soccer in Ontario.  A newly created Officials Module was released in 2020, and is mandatory for registered Match Officials.  The training costs $20 and the certificate is valid for a period of five (5) years.

Certification is also valid and transferable across all sports. Please complete your 2024 requirements here:

Assessor , Assignor and Instructor only registration

If you do not actively officiate, and only assess, instruct, assign mentor etc. you can register for a reduced fee of $75.00

To do so, process your registration on Refcentre, but do not pay online as we need to manage the payment offline to provide you this discount. Select PAY BY CHEQUE and email so we can process the offline payment and approve your registration

Attention - Referees that did not register in 3 or more years

If you are a previously registered Ontario Soccer Match Official that has not registered for 3 years or more, we have incentives available to you - the game needs you back!

Canada Soccer rules state "A Referee who has failed to register as a Referee with Canada Soccer for 2 consecutive seasons shall not be re-registered until an application has been considered by the Member Association within whose area the Referee resides at the time of application for re-registration." 

Ontario Soccer will be inviting any whose registration expired on March 31, 2020 or more recently, to simply re-register with no requirement to retake the course.

They will NOT be required to retake the Canada Soccer Entry Level Course if they pass a current Laws of the Game exam with a mark of 80% or more. 

The individual will be provided with 2 attempts to pass this exam.  If after 2 attempts the required mark is not met, the individual will be required to retake the Entry Level course as failure to pass indicates a need for more current law review.

If you wish to be considered for this process, please email with the following:

Respect in Sport

Ontario Soccer has partnered with the Respect Group to provide online education for coaches, referees and parents to help create a safe, healthy, and positive environment for children and youth involved in soccer.

The Respect in Sport Program assists coaches, referees, trainers and managers with identifying and dealing with abuse, neglect, harassment and bullying in sport.

The Respect in Sport Officials certification is a required component of renewing your license as a Match Official. This certification expires every 5 years and must be renewed prior registering. This certification applies to all Match Officials grade 4-10 and Grade 1 Officials over the age of 16. See documents below for further information.

Futsal Match Officials Registration

Registration to renew officiating licenses for Futsal Match Officials occur on an annual basis between Sept 1st - December 31st of the current year.
