Opportunities in Women’s Soccer

If you’re looking for opportunities to advance your career in women’s soccer then you’re in luck because there are plenty!  Soccer is the fastest growing sport in North America, along with basketball. Not only that but more girls are being registered than boys. With that being the case there are an abundance of opportunities to move your way up not only as a player, but as a referee in the women’s game.

Male referees are in demand as it is but the women’s game would rather have female referees than males (understandably). At the present time that just isn’t the case. If you’re a female and looking to become a referee (or never even thought of it) then this is a great time to become one. One of the many benefits is you can enter at any level of play and if you want to advance to the national level the opportunity exists. And best of all, this can be done rapidly.

In all areas of life it is best to go where the opportunities exist. Sometimes you may not like that path but by taking it you are creating opportunities and experiences for yourself.  Becoming a referee can be a great way to meet other people in the game and beyond, stay involved in the game you love in and help the sport grow in North America.  Best of all, you never know what may happen down the road.

The idea for Goalden is to help other soccer players of all ages improve the many different aspects of their game. We began coaching youth teams and watching youth soccer all over Ontario. We watched semi-professional and professional teams and noticed how far the game still has to develop here. From that, we decided we want to help others obtain the best information as early as possible in their soccer careers. We want to educate readers about the game of soccer and the fine details that are often overlooked by coaches in North America.
