Welcome Refs

Dear Fellow Referee:

It's a great time to be a youth soccer referee.  Thanks to the success of our Women's and Men's National Team, the growth of MLS and WNSL and exploding popularity of players like Alex Morgan and Landon Donovan, more and more kids are kicking it with soccer then ever before!  Arizona is benefiting tremendously, as we have warm weather and a number of high quality complexes to host matches.

Referees are an important part of the soccer match.  More than ever, we need motivated individuals willing to pick up a flag and a whistle.  The success of our support depends on young players learning the laws of the game in addition to technical skills.  As a referee in a youth game, you are providing the next generation of soccer players with a foundation on which their game is developed.  You are also a role model; our youngest players view he referee with a sense of awe and many hope to be wearing a yellow shirt one day.  

If you are interested in referee training, please visit for information about upcoming classes and clinics.  

Grade 7 and above referees are always needed.  To be added to the list for game assignments, please send an e-mail to our referee assignor, Marc Engle.  Marc can be reached at [email protected].  We also welcome you to stop by our complex to meet us and learn more about our league.  Our games are scheduled on Friday nights and Saturdays during our fall and spring season.  

We look forward to seeing you at the fields!
