Referee News and Events


Massachusetts State Referee Committee (MSRC) has made significant changes in the referee certification program effective May 2014!


The MSRC has stopped offering new Grade-9 Referee certifications effective May, 2014.  Referees that are younger than 14 and are already certified Grade-9 referees will be “grandfathered” and can take a Grade-9 recertification course and continue to referee as Grade-9's until they turn age 14.  At age 14, Grade-9 referees who take recertification will be put into a Grade-8 certification course and become Grade-8 referees.  


More information is available at the MSRC website:  https//


CYSA plans to begin a new program in spring 2015 to train 12 and 13 year old CYSA registered players to become referees for CYSA U8 and U10 Intramural matches.  Please keep your eye on this page for additional information about the training date, time and venue and how to register.
