Eastern New York Youth Soccer Association is looking for new Grassroots Referees.

The certification class consists of both online and classroom learning so referees are able to step on soccer fields. Classes are not taking place right now because of the COVID-19 pandemic but applicants must complete online training first anyway before the classroom sessions.

All applications must be at least 14-years-old.

A referee student must:

* Set up a profile on the U,S, Soccer Learning Center (https://learning.ussoccer.com/)

* Complete the Grassroots online training via Eastern New York’s State specific link to the U.S. Soccer Learning Center
Students 18 and older must complete online Safesport Training. Link and code will be provided by Eastern New York

* Create a Game Officials Profile on the Game Officials website

When your certification is completed after passing a rules test, you will be your own boss and can give your availability to assignors so they will assign you games that fit your life.
