Each year we receive many general questions about becoming a referee for ABYS.  To help answer these questions, we have compiled a list of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) to assist your family.

As many as thirty thousand soccer matches are played annually in Massachusetts organized in leagues by gender and age. All of these matches require at least one certified soccer official. In the United States,soccer is governed by an affiliate of FIFA called the United State Soccer Federation, USSF. USSF publishes the Laws of the Game, the rules, that govern all affiliated matches in the US. These rules are administered by certified soccer referees. These referees are formally trained by the USSF and annually re-certified The certification process ensures consistency in the application of the Laws and provides blanket insurance coverage for all the affiliated referees.

Other questions?  If you have additional questions or need further clarification, please reach out to the current Referee Director, David Morse. You can also contact the ABYS Registrar:[email protected]
