Head Referee 


A message from the Head Referee

We are proud to offer our referee team the highest paying wages in Montreal which ranges between $16.00 – $24.00 per game. Players 14 years or older are encouraged to apply. Imagine a scenario that enables you to work outdoors, learn new rules and game strategies that will ultimately mould you into a better player, and allows you to earn money at the same time. STL is currently seeking young responsible players to join its team of referees. The ideal candidate would be a disciplined player, who is passionate and dedicated to the sport. It’s a great opportunity for players to referee a match at Marcel-Laurin Park and afterwards enjoy playing a match on the same field with your team! Those chosen will undergo a two-day weekend course sometime in March-April (to be confirmed) which costs $55.00 to obtain a Lac Saint-Louis referee certification!

Head Referee,

Christopher Quinn

What are the duties of a soccer referee?

Enforcers of the game, referees make binding decisions regarding the application of the laws of soccer. The main referee works in conjunction with assistant referees, who are in charge of watching the lines and ensuring the game is being played fairly.

Enforcing Fair Play

The main duty of a referee is to watch over the game and enforce fair play. Referees have a right to sanction players with yellow or red cards, stop or terminate the game due to risk factors, and assess fouls and penalties. Referees are also in charge of keeping time and providing a game report to league officials.

Keeping Players Safe

Referees monitor player safety. This means that if a player is injured or bleeding, a referee stops the game and ensures that the player is removed or cared for on the field. This protects both the injured player and the teammates. Referees can also card players to maintain order in the match and order coaches or parents to leave sidelines if they’re interfering with the play or not conducting themselves properly.

Looking for Stormy Weather

A referee must pay attention to the surrounding environment and ensure that the conditions are acceptable for play. For example, a referee must stop the match if the weather is too severe, interferes with the play or is putting the players in danger. The same is true if the condition of the field is not up to code, if spectator interference occurs or if some of the fixtures or equipment become damaged during the game.
