Becoming a referee provides valuable lessons in leadership and teamwork - as well as a great way for kids to earn a little spending money or fund additional soccer training! Schedules are flexible and allow you to work around family time and other commitments.

Children interested in refereeing in-house Rec games must be 10 years old by March 31. Travel referee candidates must be 13 years old by the time they complete a required training course. Travel referees must also complete additional requirements, including a set of background checks.

For additional details on how your child can become a referee, please contact Brendan Sherry, PTSA Referee Assignor, and review the following documents:
