Introduction to the Pensra Website - NorCal Premier STARPrintable

The NorCal Premier competitive soccer organization has a STAR (Specially Trained Adult Referee) program directed at parents.   STAR referees:

  • undergo a minimal amount of training to have some understanding of the laws of soccer and the responsibilities of the referees. 
  • assist referees as club linespersons. 
  • assist referees by explaining the laws to other spectators
  • assist referees in the pre match and post match duties  
  • fill in as a referee in the event that the assigned referee is unavailable

Here is a short video explaining how the STAR referee gets signed up.
