We welcome all youth and adults willing to learn, teach, and set a positive example for our young players and community.

WSA BLACKSHIRT (officiates REC games only): REGISTER HERE
A non-certified entry-level Rec league referee. To qualify, you must be entering 6th grade or higher. No experience is necessary, however, it is essential to learn the Laws of the Game. Our program is a terrific opportunity for our youth to get involved, gain valuable experience, and make money too! Blackshirt training for the spring season is in late March and early September for the fall. Training for all referees at any level continues through the season on the field with our adult referee mentors.
USSF "YELLOWSHIRT" (officiates REC, Travel, & Premier games) requires USSF certification. REGISTER TO CERTIFY HERE
To qualify, you must be age 13 or older at the time of registration. Certification is done through the state on www.ctreferee.net and requires completing an online course/test and in-class/field training. Fee is $93.95 plus uniform cost. RE-certification is required each year.
