Mission Statement








Medway Youth Soccer cannot function without the help of our referees. If you are interested in becoming a referee please contact Amy Chiplock, Medway Referee Assignor (mysreferees@gmail.com ).

In-town (intramural referees) are typically U12 - U14 players. While certification is not required for intramural referees, it is strongly recommended that you complete the Grade 9 certification class through the Massachusetts Referee Association.


Travel referees are required to be certified through the Massachusetts Referee Association. In order to be certified, you must be at least 12 years old, or turning 12 during the current season. Travel referees primarily work in Medway, but have the opportunity to work in other towns if they are interested. You will not be scheduled outside of Medway unless you ask to be.


Certification information can be found at: www.massref.net


When choosing a certification course, the following information will be helpful:


Take the Grade 9 course if:

  • You are at least 12 years old but not yet 16 years old.

  • You want to referee 6 v 6 games only.

Take the Grade 8 course if:

  • You are at least 16 years old.

  • You wish to referee full-sided (11 players a side) soccer.

  • You want to referee competitive players.

Take the Grade 8 Bridge course if:

  • You have been a Grade 9 Referee for at least 1 year and your age plus your years of experience adds to exactly 16 or more.

  • You have been a high school referee

  • You have been a Grade 8 referee in the past five years, but let your registration lapse.

Medway Youth Soccer will reimburse you for your first certification class. Upon completion of your class, please contact Amy Chiplock for information regarding reimbursements. Annual recertification costs are the responsibility of the referee. All travel referees are required to have a current year certification. This will be verified with the Massachusetts Referee Association prior to the start of each season.

Referee Uniforms:


All certified referees (travel or intramural) are required to wear a proper referee uniform - shirt (including current certification patch), shorts, socks, cards, watch and whistle.

Intramural referees who have not completed a certification class will be given a Referee T-shirt.
