Become a Referee
New Grassroots Referee courses are being offered by the Wisconsin Soccer Referee Development Program (WisRef) for 2023 registration. Successful candidates will have the opportunity to officiate games for the spring, summer and fall 2023 calendar year. Minimum age per US Soccer policy is 13 years old at the time of registering for the course.
This course is for new, first time Referees that have not been previously registered as a Referee OR a previously registered Referee who has had a lapse in registration (2020 or prior lapse).
WisRef & the WYSA have partnered to encourage players, parents, coaches and others to become a New Referee. WYSA is providing reimbursement of registration, course fees and background check fees for those who successfully complete the requirements to become a US Soccer Referee for the 2023 registration period.
This is a 12 hour course: 8 hours online US Soccer Learning Center course work (on your own) and 4 hours WisRef In-Person Field Session (with Instructors).

We hope to see you in a New Referee course and on the fields in 2023!
