Become A Soccer Referee

Gulf Coast Soccer Officials Association (GCSOA)
Become a part of the solution! Soccer is the fastest growing sport in America ... the children as well as adult leagues need your help … become a referee!


Common reasons people like you become a referee
· To make a difference in the world and be a part of the solution


· I love the game and want to become involved in its growth


· My kids play and I want to get involved


· I think I can do a better job than the ref I saw at the last game


· I could use the money


· There are not enough refs to cover the games. Someone has to help


There are various levels to become involved in 

· City Recreation – games through the city, referees are assigned through GCSOA


· Catholic Youth Organization (CYO) – games of the Catholic Youth Organization. Again, games are assigned by GCSOA


· United States Soccer Federation (USSF) – games sanctioned by USSF, generally Club Soccer, club tournaments, and adult leagues. Assigned by GCSOA or other USSF assignor.


· High School – Middle School, JV and Varsity – all games in Mobile Co. are assigned by GCSOA

Other points of interest

· Training and licensing is available through GCSOA


· Training starts soon


· Cost to get started is very small


· Can start as early as age 12


· It’s fun and healthy


I may be interested … who do I contact to get more information and address my questions? Talk to any soccer official or contact Miles Ball. I look forward to talking with you soon. Get Involved!!
