  • Covid-19 update 4/2/20

    Posted April 5, 2020

    Over the past few weeks, we have been discussing options for our spring soccer season.  As you know, news is rapidly changing and it is difficult to anticipate a specific date when social distancing guidelines will relax to a degree that we feel comfortable on the field.

    With your family’s health our primary focus, we have decided to cancel our spring 2020 season.  We know that your children are looking forward to being with their friends and participating in activities like soccer, and we are very disappointed to make this difficult decision.  Our sincere hope is to be able to offer soccer programs in some form as soon as it is safe to do so.  We anticipate making an assessment in May as to the possibility of summer soccer.

    In the meantime, we will be issuing refunds to all families.  Please have patience as we have several hundreds of accounts to process. Thank you for your continued support and we can’t wait to see you and your children on the fields.


Interested in becoming a referee?


updated April 2018


All information about entry level referee training is found at the CT State Referee Program website. All registration and instructional materials for entry level clinics will be done online. Below is a summary of requirements and what to expect.

You will not be able to register for the field session until you complete the online training. You must complete field training and exam on the same day. Expect to stay until the end and do not ask to leave early.

The majority of referee training is done online. All training requirements must be completed at that time. Should you want to ref next year, you must complete training (online and field session before end of December.

You must be at least 13 years old as of June 30th. I find many perform better and enjoy it more when they start at an older age. We would like more adults (male and female) to get involved as there are only a handful of us that are certified referees.

Referees must provide their own uniform and equipment. I recommend that you purchase a starter kit for under $50. Official Sports is the official supplier to US Soccer but you may use any supplier. The CT Referee Program has links to some stores that carry Soccer Referee Uniforms. You will not find soccer referee uniforms at Sports Authority and Dick's Sporting Goods.

Most recreation games are played on Saturday mornings and travel games are played in the afternoons. South Windsor pays referees between $25 and $70 per assignment but referees can work in other towns and at tournaments. Income earned depends on desire, availability and experience.

Should you have questions concerning referee training or referees in general, please feel free to contact me.

Thank you,
