Existing Referees

Recertification for existing referees is done exclusively online.

New Referees

We would like more adults (male and female) to get involved as there are only a handful of us that are certified referees. This is a great opportunity for kids/young adults to earn experience playing a role of responsibility by managing flow of a soccer match between competitive teams. Youth referees must be at least 13 years old as of June 30th of this year. 

Online Entry Level Training for the Spring begins in February and wraps up in mid-March. Online Training restarts in late summer/early fall and will end in late December.

All information about entry level referee training is found at the CT State Referee Program website. All registration and instructional materials for entry level clinics are done online.

What you can expect

Referees 18 years and older will have to complete the Background Check if they want to officiate any CJSA sponsored youth competitions. The Background Check is not instantaneous. Once you have submitted your Background Check you will have to wait 5 business days for it to be processed before you can resume your Recertification.

After successful completion of Module Test # 4 you will need to register for a Field Training/Test Session. The Field Training/Test Session will be a one-day event, typically scheduled on a Saturday or Sunday, consisting of a three hour field training session and a two hour testing session, during which you will be administered the USSF Referee Certification Test. The certification test contains 100 multiple choice and true/false questions.

You will not be able to register for the field session until you complete the online training. You must complete field training and exam on the same day. Expect to stay until the end and do not ask to leave early.

The majority of referee training is done online. All training requirements must be completed at that time. Should you want to ref next year, you must complete training (online and field session/exam) before end of December.
