Referee Training

To become a US Soccer Federation (USSF) referee you must attend a series of training clinics given by a specially trained and certified instructor and pass the associated test. WYS sponsors the Grade 8 and Grade 7 clinics, which are hosted by affiliated clubs throughout the state. There is no exception to these requirements, even if you were a player or coach.
