U.S. Soccer Grassroot Referee Recertification 2024

ENY / US Soccer has NOT scheduled the recertification yet


In Case of Thunder or Lightning

At the first sound of thunder or sign of lightning, referees must pull all players off the pitch and seek shelter in a nearby building or vehicles.  

Games  should not restart until at least 30 minutes have passed since the last thunder or lightning. 

Additional sound of thunder or sign of lightning, resets the 30 minute count.





For those referees new to the process, we would like to clarify some terms. 

WSRO – This organization is the Westchester Soccer Referee Org. providing referees with Registration support and Educational and development opportunities.
