In summer 2019, 27 youth participants took the inaugural SF Youth Referee Summer Camp and over 80% did not only their first game but also referee'd consistently for more than 5 of the 10 week season SFYS runs. These are unparalleled retention numbers that have not been seen in a youth referee pool, ever.
Building on the success of that camp, SF Youth Soccer is holding a multi-day Summer Youth Referee Camp Style Clinics throughout the year. All participants will receive a full uniform on the first day of camp that will be required of them to wear during the camp. By the end of the week, your child will be a United States Soccer Federation certified referee, as well as an AYSO certified referee + be USYS, US Club and SAY Soccer certified [Subject to passing the USSF and AYSO referee test(s)].
Note* If you are a participant that is under the age of 13 you are not eligible to take the US Soccer Grassroots training per US Soccer mandates. You will, however, be able to be AYSO and SAY badged; granting you licensed referee status to officiate either SFYS Recreational or SFYS Upper House leagues, as well as AYSO or SAY local tournaments in the Greater Bay Area.
REF CAMP IN A NUTSHELL
Multi-certifications, 30 hours of lecture/field training/ game scenarios, 1 week of spring break... Endless opportunities to officiate the beautiful game and create some income for oneself. Where else can a kid sign up for a camp over summer and immediately start earning money just after it?! *
