Become a referee!

We always need more refs. Become a small sided or full field referee. This is the last small sided course of the season and is good for kids 12+. Reffing is a great way to stay involved and earn money!

Register here: Ref Centre

In the dropdown for Select Club, choose Victoria.  There is a small sided and entry level (full field) course available. For small sided, you must be 12 on the last day of the course.

SFFC is always in need of referees for games. The program is very supportive of new refs and it's a great way to spend a weekend while boosting your resume.

Racism is not Tolerated

Saanich Fusion is committed to providing an environment free of discrimination and harassment, where all individuals are treated with respect and dignity, can contribute fully and have equal opportunities. This past weekend an incident happened at our fields that we need to address. A grandparent of one of our players made a hurtful and insensitive comment about an Indigenous player from the opposing team. Our player's parents have come forward and are incredibly sorry that this incident occurred and recognize the seriousness of the comments. The parents on both sides have shared their contact details with us and we are actively working on connecting them.

The SFFC Board wants to make it clear to all members, supporters, and opponents that we condemn this type of behavior in all measures. Racism is unwelcome in sports, and we recognize the insidious nature of systemic racism and how it has shaped, and still impacts modern day society. We want everyone to feel safe and respected when they visit our club or play our teams. Any Fusion member who is found to be unwelcoming by our discipline committee especially in matters connected to race, orientation, and appearance will face sanctions.  

We, as a club, are governed by BC soccer’s rules around this. They are as follows:

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Policy
POLICY STATEMENT
BC Soccer welcomes all individuals to participate in soccer and believes that embracing differences while removing barriers to promote diversity and equity and foster inclusion, is integral to serving the wider soccer community.


Saanich Fusion Football Club acknowledges and respects the lək̓ʷəŋən peoples on whose traditional territory our teams play and grow, and the Songhees, Esquimalt and W̱SÁNEĆ peoples whose relationships with the land continue to this day. We also want to thank our supporters who have offered to put us in touch with Chief Ron Sam of Songhees, with whom we welcome beginning a dialogue of how we can continue to make the club a safe place for everyone, physically, socially, and emotionally in the continuing spirit of reconciliation.
