Throughout the Madison area and the State we are in great need of referees. Since we greatly appreciate the work you have done and will do as a referee, there is an incentive offered by the Madison Area Youth Soccer Association:
Recertifying Referees get a $65 bonus after successfully completing their re-cert class and having worked a minimum of 10 league games in the Madison area in the immediate prior year
New Referees get a $50 bonus after their first 5 MAYSA league games.
Referees need to simply fill out a google form to receive their bonus:
For New Referees click here: New Referee Bonus request Form
For Re-certifying Referees click here: Referee Bonus Request Form ( This link will be added back when the re-cert season starts again after the fall 2021 soccer season)
In order to become a New or Re-certifying Referee please take the following steps:
1) Visit the US Soccer Learning Center web page (click here):
2) Complete the Online modules. These have been prepared by US Soccer and cover important areas such as Laws of the Game, pre and post-game responsibilities, using game officials, interacting with Assignors and Mentors, etc.
3) Complete an "In Person" Course. These are offered by our State Referee Committee and, while we are all practicing social distancing due to Coronavirus, offered in a virtual format through Zoom Meetings. You can complete this portion from the comfort of your home!
