a)The OSA currently has two Futsal referee courses.
The first is an Entry Level course for individuals that want to referee futsal. In order to take the Entry Level Futsal Referee Course, you no longer need to be a soccer referee first. You can take the entry level futsal referee course without being a soccer referee.
The second course is a Futsal Refresher course. This course is designed
to refresh and update Futsal referees who have previously take the
Futsal Entry Level course. The OSA published rules state that a Futsal
referee in order to maintain their Futsal certification must take the
refresher course every two years.
b) The official rules for Futsal – ‘The FIFA Futsal Laws of the Game’ are published by FIFA and cover all aspects of the rules that the game should be played to and the disciplinary actions that players face when they infringe on those rules. The FIFA Futsal Laws of the Game can be found on the FIFA website by clicking here.
