Referee Program

We are always looking to grow and improve our referee pool.

We would love for YOU to become a referee! We need more referees across the area for league games and need some additional referees for some of our upcoming events.

Becoming a referee is even EASIER now with most of the instruction completed online. In Ohio, you are required to be in person for the on-field session in addition to the online pre-course work. Kentucky Youth Soccer is continuing to have the on-field session via ZOOM and hopes this flexibility will enable you to consider becoming a referee.

Being a referee is among the best part-time jobs anyone can have as you essentially set your hours and can easily make more than $20/hr. Please consider signing up today.

In addition to the course fee of $65, there is a $30 background check for anyone over the age of 18. If you live in KY, you will follow the links to register in KY. If you live in OH, you can follow the links to register in OH. 

Please direct any questions on this or any referee matter to Julie Hegerty at
