Entry level referee certification courses, grade 8 or 9, are designed for adults or youth 12 and up and will allow you to referee most U12 games and below and older games depending on experience. The final exam is a written test of which 75% need to be correct answers. Entry level courses cost no more than $50, but SCORE will reimburse your costs if you referee one or more game for our club.
Trias is our local referee web site; all referees will need to register with the site and obtain a user name and password prior to being assigned to games. Referees can self-assign themselves to games, pending approval from the assignor, Cindy Moore. Contact Cindy at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have problems with registration or self-assignment. Coaches and team managers should also get acquainted with Trias; the match inquiry section of the web site provides information on the referees assigned to each game.
Existing referees are required to re-certify on an annual basis and any associated costs can also covered by SCORE. You MUST attend one of three meetings offered - all on a different date/time/week to accommodate everybody - for a FIFA law memorandum update, new WSYSA rules of competition and local association rules of competition updates. Also included is a review of Trias self-assignment and website operation.
