RFYS prides itself on the fact that our referees are young people from our community.  

Subject to limited exceptions, RFYS has two basic eligibility requirements: (1) referee is at least age 12 when the season begins; and (2) referee obtains Grade 8 certification from the Illinois Soccer Referee Committee.  Please click here to see the schedule of when certification clinics are available.

Periodic Grade 8 recertification is recommended but not required.  RFYS pays referees a fee of $15-$30 per match, depending on the age of the players.  

All match assignments are at the discretion of RFYS and the Referee Coordinator.  If you have any questions about becoming a RFYS referee, please contact [email protected].
