Referee & Volunteer Program (RVP)

RVP Overview

Marin FC maintains the Referee and Volunteer Program (RVP) in order to accomplish many goals. First and foremost, volunteers and referees in the soccer community are always needed. Additionally however, referee licensure educates our players to the full spectrum of the game. And importantly, the program fundraises for Club programs such as financial aid, facilities and coach education.

U8 through U12 (the 'Juniors' ages)

Players may, but at these ages parents are expected to volunteer for club or team in some capacity.  A $100 deposit is collected at registration which is fully refundable when volunteering is confirmed. Team managers report their team's cadre of volunteers to the club for refund crediting.

U13 through U15 (the 'Youngers' ages)

Players are expected to become licensed (courses hosted by Marin FC are free to our players and the club provides an initial kit) and then referee 5 games in the Marin soccer community.  A $220 deposit is collected at registration of which $100 is refundable upon completion of 5 games refereed by the player. Games refereed for Marin FC are automatically reported by our assignor and Director of Referees for refund credit. Players who referee games elsewhere must report those games themselves using the online reporting form.

U16 through U19 (the 'Olders' ages)

Players are expected to referee five games or volunteer in the soccer community for the equivalent amount of time (5 hours).
