This is to encourage all TYSL players that meet the requirements below to consider becoming a certified soccer referee. We anticipate an entry-level class to
be held in Troy before the next spring season.


Effective immediately, all new referees applying for consideration to referee games involving the Troy Youth Soccer League and assigned through the Troy Soccer Referee Association Assigner must meet the following requirements:

(1) Be of the age of 14 (at a minimum, 14th birthday of applicant to occur during season for which they are applying to referee)
(2) Played soccer for a minimum of two full seasons
(3) Have a prior soccer coach provide to Troy Soccer Referee Association Assigner a statement recommending the applicant to referee.

This new rule does not affect anyone currently active refereeing TYSL related games.
