    Referee Development and Mentoring

    Experienced referees support and mentor new referees. You will become a full-fledged referee in a postitive and educational environment.

    U10 Referee Volunteer Point (RVP) System
    Each U10 Divsion team will be asked to provide two new volunteers to be trained as Basic Referees. The new recruits can be parents, family and friends, or youth (11 and older). New referees will be affiliated with their respective teams. These referees will earn points toward their team's Division standings when they referee games.

    On-Field Mentoring
    New referees typically start to officiate as U8 referees or U10 Assistant Referees. An experieced referee will be assigned to support new referees learning game day procedures and how to apply the laws of the game. Mentors also help ensure that coaches, parents, and referees work together to give players a positive soccer experience.
