Top 10 Reasons to Become a WSSL Referee!

  1. Great exercise (The referee below was having a great time running up and down the field to keep up with the kids and their exciting game on both ends of the pitch)!
  2. Best place to see the game
  3. Wonderful interaction opportunity with the players
  4. Love of the game
  5. Opportunity to clear your head of all the normal day-to-day clutter
  6. Arm got twisted
  7. Child's team didn't have at least two certified referees
  8. Great way to fulfill WSSL volunteer requirement
  9. Camaraderie with other referees
  10. Students get community service credits
  11. (Ok, so it's 11...) Awesome uniforms!

Whatever reasons motivate you to take the field as a Referee, we try to provide support and encouragement to make this a rewarding experience for you and the players!

How to Get Certified

Division Chief Referees

The Chief Referees in each division should be your first point of contact about rules and the practical aspects of refereeing. Please use this website to look for information but if you cannot find what you need, please contact your chief referee if you have questions about:

  • refereeing in your division,
  • how to schedule yourself for games,
  • becoming a referee,
  • the Laws of the Game,
  • requesting mentoring,
  • anything else about referees and their responsibilities.

If you are not sure which Division your child is in, or if you are trying to reach your division's Chief Referee, you can check under DIVISIONS.

We have a manual for the division Chief Referees. To view it, please click here: Chief Referee Manual.
