WisRef 2024 “NEW” Referee Course Instructions
NEW Referee courses are being offered by the Wisconsin Soccer Referee Development Program (WisRef)
for a 2024 USSF Referee license expiring 12/31/2024. The successful Referee candidate will have the
opportunity to officiate games for the fall of 2023 and all of the 2024 calendar year soccer seasons.
This course is for new, first time Referees that have not been previously registered as a Referee OR a
previously registered Referee who has had a lapse in registration (2021 or prior lapse). Minimum age per
US Soccer policy is 13 years old at the time of registering for the course.
WisRef & the WYSA have partnered in order to encourage players, parents, coaches and others to
become a NEW Referee. WYSA is providing reimbursement of registration, course and background check
fees for NEW or Lapsed Registration Referees (2021 or prior lapse) who successfully complete the
requirements to become a US Soccer Referee for the 2024 registration period.

Attend the New Referee course in Milton on August 27th, referee 10 Milton Soccer Club traveling games, and receive $100!!!
This is on top of the Maysa incentive, which MSC also matches and the MSC volume bonus which begins at 10 games, so refs will receive a bonus on their bonus!!!
Milton Soccer Club also offers a referee incentive that compliments the one of MAYSA. We request that you complete the MAYSA submission for incentive. Upon completion, MSC will match the MAYSA amount. The only separate requirement MSC has is that the games must be MSC games, but this does include both in house and traveling games.
We are also offering a per game bonus once certain volume levels are met, starting at 10! Bonus is backdated and covers all Milton games (traveling AND in house). This is tracked and paid annually (Spring + Fall) and paid after the fall season is complete.
Reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org after MAYSA incentive has been completed.
