Youth Rec Soccer for Northeast Seattle

Officiating overview

Our games are officiated by youth game coordinators  or city association referees depending on the age division. 

HOUSE LEAGUE

Game Coordinators/Referees (GCR):  Referees for House League games (U7-U9 players, ages 6-8) are assigned through LVR and do not require certification.  House League play involves small-sided games with three to five players on the field with no scores or standings. The duty of the GCR is primarily to stop play for fouls as well as provide instruction to players on how the game is played. The ideal GCR is at least 3 years older than the players (so age 9+), but exceptions are always considered.

The GCR performs many duties of the typical match referee, but the orientation is to provide new coaches, players, and their families with a game-like experience that introduces them to safety considerations, concepts of sportsmanship, and an introduction to a modified set of Laws of the Game. To register or for more information, please contact Rick Bawaan at [email protected].

Typically, a new GCR orientation is provided the first weekend of the season. The number of returning GCR's determines how many open slots we have for new youth referees.  

Starting the first weekend after Labor Day, House League games are played on both Saturdays and Sundays through the end of October.  The length of games vary with age, but all games are less than one hour. As you might note, Saturdays have double the number of games than Sundays, so working back-to-back games is mostly a Saturday event. GCRs  are required to check-in 10 minutes before game time; we observe a five minute grace period then a slot may be re-assigned to another referee.


CITY LEAGUE
 
LVR / SYSA league matches for U10+ are officiated by referees provided through the Seattle Soccer Referee Association (SSRA).

  • We encourage kids age 14+ to go straight to SSRA to get certified and start refereeing.  

  • Please check with Washington State Referee Committee (WSRC) for upcoming referee training clinics.  Course typically involve an online and in-person component.
