Saturday, March 21, 2015

York USA is happy to welcome approximately 70 new referees starting with the Spring 2015 soccer season. As these newly trained and certified referees, along with the returning experienced referees, officiate our games this season. The York USA Board of Directors, officers of our member clubs, and York Area Soccer Referee's Association (YASRA) ask for your positive support and cooperation with the referees at all times. They have a challenging and sometimes difficult task and do so to the best of their abilities. We especially ask for your understanding and patience with those new referees as they enter this noble profession.

Remember that verbal abuse or negative criticism of referees is as unacceptable as verbal abuse or negative criticism of players and will not be tolerated.
