Referee Certification

The Arlington Soccer Club is always looking for people interested in becoming soccer referees.

Games are assigned for Saturdays (mornings and afternoons) and Sundays (afternoons). You should expect to work about one game per weekend.

For younger referees, an in-town course is held annually in the winter for 7th and 8th graders.  7th grade refs will be allowed to do in-town referee work in the spring season, 8th grade refs in both the fall and spring season.  One time cost for this course is $10 which covers the cost of the referee shirt you will need for games.

For older referees, you will need to obtain a Gr.8 (youth level) referee qualification to ref games for ASC.  Please take a look at the course listings offered through MassRef.   Note that the Grade 8 course is open to ages 14 and older.  The course as of 2017 costs $115.00 and takes 8 hours to complete and is usually run on a Saturday or Sunday 9-5.   ASC will reimburse the certification course fee provided that the referee has worked at least 15 games.

Certified referees must complete the re-certification course annually in order to maintain their credentials.  Re-certification courses can also be found here.
