Prospective Referee Information

Refereeing with Arlington Soccer Association is an excellent way for prospective referees to get introduced to refereeing in an environment focused on development and learning. Become an expert at rules of the game, get some exercise, give back to the soccer community, develop confidence and leadership skills, and make some money! If you are interested in becoming an Arlington Soccer referee, we want to hear from you!


  • It is now the end of February and many of you HAVE NOT re-certified for 2019. 
  • If you are already registered for a clinic, GREAT. 
  • If you have already re-certified, EVEN BETTER.
  • If you HAVE NOT registered, PLEASE do so ASAP so we can fill those classes that still have seats available and decide if we need more re-cert clinics.
  • If you have friends who want to be referees, PLEASE get them to sign up for the NEW on-line Grade 8 Combo New Referee class.

WE NEED MORE REFEREES to cover all our games.

Anyone interested in becoming a referee can email Tarey Houston at for more instructions/information.

New referee classes take place prior to each season, and graduates are immediately able to start refereeing 2nd-grade games immediately!

Arlington Soccer normally only accepts and trains new referees who are in 8th grade and older. If you are an adult seeking to get involved or looking for referee training, please visit for registration and class information.
