Grassroots New Referee Courses

Courses for new referees have just been closed, due to too many issues with getting candidates to finish the requirements and also to get instructors during the busy outdoor season.

If you would like to have your name added to a list for our August courses, please send an email to and we’ll send an email in late summer. This site will also be updated, when the New Referee courses are open.

The WYSA has told us that the referee registration & course fee reimbursement as well as the uniform kit will be in effect for August yet.

Plus, those who complete the August courses can referee all this fall and ALL of 2023 with the same registration (background check, SafeSport and Safe & Healthy Playing Environments do have a 12 month expiration, however).

Grassroots Recert Courses

Grassroots Recert Courses will close June 15th, to coincide with the closing of the USSoccer registration. Instructions have been sent to all referees who have had a US Soccer Referee License from 2019 through 2021 – however, if you still need the instructions, please email

2023 recertification for all referees will open in November, with notices being posted on this site, as well as emails being sent to the emails as listed in the US Soccer Learning Center.
