Referee Meeting

Meetings are held at the beginning of the fall and spring season. Bookmark this page for announcements of future meetings or refer to the CYSA Calendar for notices before the beginning of each season.

Attendance is mandatory to receive your full bonus of 20% for the season. This also provides a way for your assignor to know your availability for officiating. If you have a conflict and cannot attend, contact your assignor. Their email address and phone numbers are listed here.

Please bring updated email address(es) when attending the meeting. New referees need to be prepared to complete a W9 form which requires a social security number.


Recertifications are generally held annually at the end of the CYSA Fall season. Bookmark this page for announcements of future clinics.

No recertifications at this time.
