WYSL Travel Soccer Games Need Referees
Support Youth Sports, Gain Job Experience, Work Flexible Hours, Earn Great Pay!

Rivertowns United travel teams play in the Westchester Youth Soccer League (WYSL). The WYSL hires certified referees to officiate its matches. To encourage referees to sign up for Rivertowns United home games and to promote refereeing in general, Rivertowns United created a reimbursement offer. 

Please note that we are a soccer club. We don't train, certify, or assign referees. Having a pool of qualified referees available to officiate our home games benefits our teams and our soccer community.

*** REIMBURSEMENT OFFER *** If you referee THREE Rivertowns United games, Rivertowns United will reimburse you for the USSF training cost (new or recertifying) and the cost of the referee association dues.  Click here for details.

What do referees get paid? For officiating a WYSL match, rates range from $55 to $105, depending on the age of the teams playing.  Find the 2022/2023 rates paid by the WYSL here: https://www.wyslsoccer.org/page/show/5042949-fees-2022-2023

What is USSF referee training? The U.S. Soccer Federation provides referee training and certification (similar to the Red Cross training and certifying lifeguards). The cost is $170, and advance registration is required. There are three parts:
   >>> 4 hours of self-paced online coursework -- this needs to be completed a week before the Zoom course date
   >>> 2 hours of a Zoom class, led by an instructor
   >>> 2 hours in-person training on a soccer field, led by an instructor

How do I get recertified once my badge expires? Active referees need to renew their certification each year. The recertification coursework is done through online modules and referees should use the same username and password so that the system recognizes them as returning referees. Find instructions here:

What do I do after I am certified, or recertified, to be able to sign up for WYSL games? The WSRO advises that you need to notify the WYSL assignor, Victor Borges, that you are a certified referee, and he will advise -- [email protected]
