Welcome Home


Becoming a certified Referee has never been easier.
The Clarkstown Soccer Club  is committed to creating the environment and the resources to take it to the next level. Each year we have over 30 Referees that participate in our in-house intramural programs. 


Please register first with our referee mailing lis.  We will add you to our Referee opportunities within the club.  REGISTER HERE

To become a USSF referee, there are three segments requiring your time: 

1) Online Grassroots Referee Course Module, approximately 4 ½ hours via the US Soccer Federation Learning Center (LC),
2) 2-hour zoom class led by an Eastern New York instructor,
3) on-field session (1.5-2 hours) held locally. 

The next zoom class is Aug 9th 2023. 

Upon completion of the class/program, you will be certified to referee for all of 2023.   We will keep you on our notification list and continue to advise you each time a “zoom” class is posted. [If you are scheduled for tonight’s class, already certified or no longer wish to receive these course notices, please hit REPLY to be removed.]

Registrations and payment ($170) are made through the LC.  To be admitted to a zoom class, one must first complete the Online Grassroots Referee Course taken through the LC…and need to be completed a week prior to the zoom class.   The required minimum age is 14 years at time of enrollment.   Please enter the student’s name (not the parent’s).

*It becomes $200 for a mandatory background check for anyone over 18.

The instructions are found at:

This link should guide you through the process:

These are the components of the Learning Center’s online Grassroots Course:

Be sure to complete all assignments and make sure you have a green check mark on each assignment. 

Upon completion of the Online Grassroots Referee Course Module, you will get a code and instructions for ordering your referee uniform package, for which you paid as part of the course fee. It contains 2 shirts, socks, shorts, yellow/red cards, line flags, whistle, flip coin and carrying bag. 

Upon completion of the zoom class, you will get an invitation to join a local referee association, for example Westchester Soccer Referee Organization (WSRO) covering Westchester, Bronx and upper Manhattan.  The WSRO will hold a field session, after which the student will receive his/her badge and will be certified to officiate and will receive information on getting assignments.

We are here to help you, so if you have any questions, get back to us.

Additional sessions will continue to be posted and will be announced to you via our e-mailing list. To see the zoom classes scheduled:
