Become A Referee

New High School Referee     

The ASOA By-Laws outline the basic requirements to become a High School Official. We encourage all that meet the basic requirements and have interest in working High School games to contact us.

A High School Official needs to attend Rules Clinics for their desired state annually, follow the tab on the side for more information. In addition, they will also be required to take Part I and possibly Part II tests as determined by the state high school associations. All new high school officials, regardless of experience from other associations, will be required to attended an additional training class.

Does the high school schedule work for you? Are you available on weeknights, can you work afternoons, and are you willing to work Saturdays? Some games may require you commute an hour to get to the game site. None of this is absolutes but a typical season has the most game opportunities on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Are you dressed for success, or at least willing to invest in multiple uniforms? We ask our high school officials to have multiple colors and wear the US Soccer adopted uniforms. For 2018, we are asking all officials to have the new US Soccer Gold, Green, and Blue in both long and short for the season. Officials also need black referee shorts, black shoes and 3-stripe socks. Most importantly, we want the officials dressed alike on the field!
