DSL Youth Referees Needed!

The Dublin Soccer League needs youth soccer referees this fall. Those born in 2007 and before are eligible to certify.

This is an excellent opportunity to earn some spending money—referee pay rates begin at $10/game—become more familiar with the Laws of the Game and gain an official’s perspective on soccer. Adult referees are also in demand. Parents, why not certify along with your child?

As a result of social distancing requirements, no in-person training will be scheduled this spring. All certification will be online through the US Soccer Learning Center. Cost is $35. All new referees must complete an NFHS Concussion Course (free and online) called Concussion in Sports. Those 18 and over must also complete a SafeSport abuse prevention course and successfully pass a background check.

New referees who certify and are interested in refereeing this fall in the Dublin Soccer League must submit a Youth Referee Availability Form by August 6th. DSL will provide new referees who have availability to work at least 4 Saturdays in the fall with a complementary referee kit (shirt, socks, wallet with cards and whistle with lanyard).  Please email any questions to: Referees@DublinSoccer.net.
