Referee Information

Referees are an important part of the game of soccer and ASE values them.  The local Tri-City Soccer Referees Association (TCSRA) assigns Center and Assistant Referees for all ASE games.  They are always looking for more teens and adults interested in becoming a part of their team.  It is a great opportunity to give back, earn a little extra money, and get some exercise!

Please contact  , ASE Head Referee, if you are interested in becoming a referee.  Upcoming clinics will be posted on the ASE calendar, as they are scheduled.


ASE is currently creating a Referee Development Program to support, train, and grow our pool of qualified officials.  Details will be posted on the ASE website as the program is rolled out.  Below is a brief list of some of the key components of the program:

  • Mentoring by experienced refs
  • Fitness training
  • Field & instructional clinics
  • Registration/equipment subsidies
  • Scholarship program
  • Tournament coordination (Mini-Academies)

If you are interested in participating in, or helping organize, this program, please contact ASE Head Referee,   .
