Refereeing

As a recreational league with a strong focus on giving children an opportunity to learn the game of soccer and develop positive sportsmanship in a fun and supportive environment, Zia Youth Soccer League expands upon the learning experience for teens by offering them the opportunity to learn to referee through our Teen Leadership Program.  Our referees are all hard-working and devoted teenagers who have years of experience playing soccer, and have decided to step into a new position in the game.  Becoming a referee is a challenging yet rewarding experience for these young athletes, one which requires a great deal of bravery and determination.  In addition to having experience as a player, our referees participate in both online and in-person training, and serve our 7U and older age divisions throughout each season.  They are all working towards earning their referee certification through the Soccer Association for Youth, and we are extremely proud of the effort each and every one of them is putting into this goal.  

This opportunity is open to all children ages 12 and above who have experience in the game of soccer.  Refereeing for Zia Youth Soccer League is a paid position, and is a great way for teenagers to earn money while doing what they love!
