No! We teach you everything you need to know! If you have played soccer before, it will help to understand the game better!
There is only one referee class per season in Mason, but other SAY districts also give classes. If possible, please attend the Mason SAY class! Only use the other SAY classes if you are NOT able to attend our class!
We try and schedule everyone for one or two games.
There is NO TEST if you want to referee INSTRUCTIONAL ONLY. To referee other divisions, you must pass the appropriate test.
- To be eligible for Passers games, you must complete the Entry-Level Test EL7
- To be eligible for Wings and older games, you must complete the Intermediate-Level Test IL1
All tests are open-book and open-notes. Access the tests here!
You have to buy a solid yellow shirt, any solid black shorts or pants, referee socks, whistle, and stop watch.
Please take our referee class if possible. However, if you have a certification for select/club games already we would love to have you join us! Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your concussion certificate and your Referee License from the US Soccer Learning Center, and it will be handled on a case-by-case basis. More information on the select/club referee class can be found at ossrc.com.
