Who do I contact if I have referee questions or concerns?

Would I have had to play soccer in order to be a referee?

No! We teach you everything you need to know! If you have played soccer before, it will help to understand the game better!

How many ref classes are given before the season starts?

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!

I cannot attend the Mason SAY referee training. What should I do?

How many games would I be able to referee on a Saturday?

We try and schedule everyone for one or two games.

Is there a test I have to pass to be a referee?

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!

What do I need to purchase to be a referee?

You have to buy a solid yellow shirt, any solid black shorts or pants, referee socks, whistle, and stop watch.

If I took a Select/Club referee class can I referee Mason SAY games?

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 masonsayrefs@gmail.com 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.

Can I referee with my friends?
