Want to become a soccer referee?? If you are interested in becoming a certified referee for the upcoming season please check the courses listed at http://www.massref.net/Central/courseofferings.cfm?CourseType=1&SortOrder=date&ZipCode=. Beginning refs need to take the Referee Grade 8 Entry Level course.
All certifications are issued with the completion of these courses. Westwood Youth Soccer has no authority over certifying a referee. If you see an open course that works for your personal schedule, sign up!
If you will be 14 by the course date you should be able to enroll online. If you turn 14 between the course date and September 30 contact CourseAdministrator@MassRef.net
These can be purchased at We Got Soccer, epic sports or other stores online. Purchase early because stores sell out close to the start of the season.
Westwood Youth Soccer provides a flag, red/yellow cards, velcro badge holder (for back of badge) and a spare whistle for new refs.
Current referees will need to take an annual re-certification course to get their current year badge. These courses are offered in the summer, fall, and early winter. All referees must be certified with a current year badge.
