Youth Soccer Referees

This site is designed to provide youth soccer referees with important information and resources.



We assign referees using the on-line assigning program, GAMEOFFICIALS.NET and would like each referee to join and use this program to help us assign.  The program allows referees to enter their potential days and time availability in advance to me issuing the game assignments.  Each referee will be sent an email notifying them they have had games assigned to them.  The assigned referee will be requested to log into and accept or decline each game: (if you are assigned games that are within your entered availability time frame you are expected to accept those games).  If in the event your game schedule changes will notify you of those changes. also tracks game pay, referee certifications, club information postings like weather policies and is a great tool for the assignor to communicate pertinent information to all referees. does not cost referees anything to join or use.   

ENTERING YOUR AVAILABILITY - Please get your availability entered AT LEAST NINE DAYS IN ADVANCE (by Thursday night 9 days in advance).  ONLY put in the times you are available to be at the park (don't worry about entering the times you are not available). 

AVAILABILITY TIME WINDOW - The larger time window you enter the better the chances we will be able to find games for you.  Many referees enter a very small time frame and/or a time not consistent with game start times (Example - 9:00am - 10:30am (too short) and a park might have games starting at 8:30 and 10:00 --- the system will not let us assign any games because it is after the start time of 1st game (8:30am) and your stop time is before the end of the 2nd game (11:15am).   

If you are a certified referee, with a current 2018 certification badge, and would like games assigned to you at Steamers FC at Bethesda Park; TYSA Academy (U9--12) and Select (U13--U19) games at Granite Fields or TYSA RIAS (U14-U19) at Henderson Parks; or JM Tull Gwinnett YMCA please join the Ken Flynn Assigning group on
