What clinics are available in order to referee for NYSA?
The United States Soccer Federation provides training for referees. Current education requires a new student to complete a series of online education modules and attend an 8 hour clinic taught over a couple of evenings, or during a long Saturday session. Students learn the laws of the game and are given an introduction to referee and assistant referee technique.
NYSA typically hosts 3 Entry Level Clinics each year. Check the What's New section of the NYSA website in the spring.
Other soccer associations also offer referee clinics and it does not matter which soccer association you take the referee clinic from. You can referee anywhere in Washington State and for any soccer association.
For a complete listing of Referee clinics across Washington State go to the WA State Referee Committee website.
