Referee of the Month – September

VISRA has started a new Referee of the Month initiative, where each month we will select a Vancouver Island referee to highlight their contributions to local soccer.

Referee of the Month for September is Ben Clark

Ben started reffing at the age of 12 for what was then Gordon Head Soccer Association (now Saanich Fusion FC), and hasn’t looked back since. In 2017 he was invited to officiate at 2 national championships (Challenge and Jubilee Cup in Surrey, and CCAA Nationals in Nanaimo). He primarily officiates VISL matches now, as well as BCSPL and LIWSA.

Recently he has been elected onto the VISRA board first as a director, and now secretary. Ben has been instrumental in getting the beep flags and substitution board up, running, and distributed to any member wanting to use them, as well as starting up the VISRA Facebook page.
