Referee Program

The CYSA recreational referee program strives to introduce young people to the unique aspect of soccer - officiating and managing a game.

The program recruits, trains, and mentors young people (players and non-players alike) for refereeing the CYSA recreational games


There are two primary requirements of CYSA recreational referees:

  • Participants must be 12 years old, or in the Seventh grade at the start of the season

  • Participants must pass an online test administered by CYSA
