How to become a referee

Referees and Referee recruits 
  • Not certified yet: Sign up for either the full day "Basic Referee" course or the half day "Basic Referee Online Companion" course.  If you are at least 10 years old, you can take the "U-8 Official" course to become certified to referee U-8 matches.  All other Basic Referee courses require you to be at least 12 years old, or turning 12 this calendar year.
  • U-8 officials wanting to upgrade to Basic/Regional status: Sign up for the half day "Basic Referee Online Companion" course  
  • Current Basic (Regional) Referees: We strongly encourage you to sign up for the "Intermediate Referee"course to upgrade your credentials, affording you the opportunity to referee games at any level, including upper levels U14 & U16. Additionally, once you are certified as an Intermediate referee, you can choose to cross-certify as a Grade 8 USSF referee, allowing you to referee "club" level matches if you wish (WYSL for example).

For any questions regarding joining the Ossining AYSO referee program or the training and certification process, or if you have issues with any of the above steps, please feel free to contact our Referee Administrator, at [email protected]
