Become a Referee

We are in desperate need of registered referees for all home games - Saturday and Sunday - but especially for our Sunday teen (U14-U19) games.

Interested in refereeing for WHYSA?

Please contact us at: [email protected]. See our U8 Referee Guidebook under Documentation for good resource on refereeing youth soccer.

How much can I earn refereeing for WHYSA?

Game rates vary depending upon the age group but referees can make $10 (U8) - $65 (U18/U19) per game. Contact us for specifics.

I'm not a registered referee now, but I want to become one. Where can I get more information?

Go to: The steps to becoming a soccer referee are outlined there.

Note: Step 5 is where you register to take a certification course. If you don’t follow the steps outlined by PA West you will not get your badge.

How old do I have to be?

You must be 13 years of age or older to become a referee.

What else do I need?

You'll need the referee uniform:

  • Yellow USSF shirt
  • All-black shorts with pockets - not player shorts
  • Two-striped black socks
  • Black shoes (do not have to be turf or cleated - up to you)


  • Watch with count-down/up timer
  • Whistle
  • Yellow and red cards
