Becoming a Referee

We are always looking for intramural  and BAYS referees.  It is a great way to contribute to Newton Soccer, be involved with soccer, and make some money.


The IM referee program is available to Newton 6th through 8th graders only.  The BAYS referee program is available to anyone 14 years or older and 8th grade or older.


Intramural Referees

There is a Pre-season Intramural training program in the fall for all incoming 6th Grade BAYS players and 6th and 7th grade students. If you would like to referee games this fall, you must attend this session. No previous referee experience is necessary. You will be assigned to games appropriate to your age and experience. This will improve your understanding of the game, it is fun and you get PAID! Please talk to your friends to join the orientation as well!

BAYS Referees

Once you are trained to be an Intramural referee, and meet the age requirements, you may move on to become BAYS certified.  To be a BAYS referee:

  • you will need to create an online account for the Massachusetts statewide referee program here:
  •  Sign up for a "New Grassroots Referee: Entry Level" course here: Certification classes are held through the year. 
  • The course fee is reimbursed by NYS after your name is posted on the referee database and you are signed up to referee Newton BAYS games.   After you complete the course, submit the receipt to NYS Treasurer and then connect with the BAYS Referee Assignor ([email protected]) so you can be added to the BAYS referee list.
