Coral Springs Youth Soccer uses a base of about 150 active referees each season. We pride ourselves in the quality of our referees and the training they receive.
Each year we look to add to our base to replace turnover and those moving out of the area. We are particularly interested in adding parents and coaches to our referee corps. You don't have to be a player to help out; it just requires some basic knowledge of the game. We train!
New Referee Information
We are holding classes in fall for new referees interested in being a part of our program. Referees must be at least 14 years old by December 1.
Our classes consist of two 3-hour lecture sessions followed by an exam. Knowledge of the Laws of Soccer will be extremely helpful in passing this exam. Those passing the exam will also be required to attend a 2-hour field training session in late November.
Classes will be held on October 24, 26 and 30 or on October 25, 27 and 30. Prospective referees must attend all three classes in their session. All sessions start at 6:30pm. All classes will be held at Mullins Hall (Mullins Park near the basketball courts, entering from 29th St).At this time all classes are full for this year. You must have previously signed up on-line in order to participate.
New referees will do most of their games on Saturdays for the first part of the season. CSYS assignors will work around the referee's game schedule if he/she also plays or coaches.
Referee Refresher Class
All 2nd year referees (those who did their first season in 2015-2016) are required to attend the Referee Refresher Class. This will be held at 5:30pm on Sunday November 13 at Mullins Hall in Mullins Park. This precedes the Annual Referee Meeting held at 7:00 the same day:
Annual Referee Meeting
