Referee Certification Course

McLean Youth Soccer, in conjunction with the Metro DC-Virginia State Referee Program, will host two on-field training sessions for new referee certification.

All new referee candidates must first complete the online certification process prior to signing up and attending the in-person, on-field training session.

Please follow this LINK to register for the 2023 certification course. Your certification will be for 2023, but you can begin officiating immediately (in 2022) once certified.

The McLean area on-field training sessions will be held on:

October 16th, 12:00-4:00 pm at Spring Hill Recreation Center Field #3
October 22nd, 12:00-4:00 pm at the Police Field

If you attend a referee class, become certified, and work 20 or more MYS games (with a maximum of five being MYS tournament games) by the one-year anniversary of you first becoming a certified referee, MYS will reimburse you with a one-time payment of $85 to cover the cost of your certification!
