Ring in the New Year as a New Referee!

From WYSA

Youth soccer is on the hunt for new referees and no prior experience is necessary. The entirely online course is approximately 12 hours of learning at your own pace, and a 4-hour virtual group session to complete the course. Sign up now to be certified before the spring season kicks-off!

Candidates who successfully complete the Grassroots First-Time Referee course will be reimbursed for the cost of the course. In addition, they will also receive a 10-piece referee uniform starter kit for free. The cost of the course is $70, or $100 for candidates 18 and older (includes background check). Candidates eligible for this offer must be first-time candidates, or individuals who have previously been a certified referee but have had a lapse in registration. Candidates must be at least 13 years old at time of registration.

Now is also the time to complete the recertification course for current referees. Referees who were registered in 2019, 2020, or 2021 may register for recertification. Once you register, you will have 30 days to complete the assignments in the Learning Center. There is no in-person or virtual component required for recertifying referees in 2022.

street soccer

In our Street Soccer program, players have the opportunity to create their own teams, make their own calls, and unconsciously develop their technical and tactical awareness–all while expressing themselves with the ball at their feet. We believe players should be able to manage themselves and have the freedom to play, interact, problem-solve, innovate, and take ownership of their participation in the game. Teams are created the day of to promote diversity, and games are played without referees to reinforce positive conflict resolution techniques. Our I-Mentor coaches will supervise each field making sure that players and facilities are safe while maintaining a fun and challenging environment.

PSU’s Street Soccer is open to all 9U to 19U players. Our Old School Street Soccer is open to any parent, soccer coach, and their significant others. Bring the whole family!
