Referee News and Events


Effective May 2014 the Massachusetts State Referee Committee (MSRC) stopped offering Grade-9 Referee certifications.  This raises the minimum age to obtain a USSF/MSRC referee certification to age 14 and the entry level is Grade-8. 

CYSA registered players aged 12 and 13 can participate in CYSA Developmental Referee program to learn refereeing.  The CYSA Developmental Referee program was launched in spring 2015 and it provides training and mentoring for 12 and 13 year old CYSA registered players to learn refereeing by participating in CYSA U8 and U10 Intramural matches.

For additional information about becoming a USSF Grade-8 referee or a CYSA Developmental Referee, please see the "Becoming a Referee" tab.
