The LaSalle Minor Soccer Association aims to be a pillar in the continued development of our referees in the sport of soccer. The club aims to create a resourceful, supervised and sanctioned administration for all soccer activities under its jurisdiction. Club referees must be well equipped to eventually serve members at all levels (beginning at local level and continuing to regional/provincial level competitions). The primary development goal is to prepare club referees for the district list and supervise the referees’ development throughout the stages of their careers to ensure continued motivation.
