WYSC Game Assigment Priorities
While WYSC tries to balance games assigned to all registered referees the following criteria is used when assigning games:
  • Professionalism displayed in the past when referring with WYSC.
  • Seniority. 
  • Availability: the more available you are during the season (according to the availability form submitted) the most likely you would receive assignments.
  • Experience: new referees only would be assigned U10 AR position, and hence limiting the number of games they could be assigned to. 
  • WYSC members would be prioritized over non-WYSC members.
WYSC'sSoccer Referee pay system / scale

  • communication
  • proper uniform (all 2nd season referees are required to have two different color referee jerseys, one must be black)
