Welcome to WJYS!

West Jordan Youth Soccer




At WJYS, one of our core beliefs is to develop and improve the quality of referees in the league. We do this by training referees through the IREF training program and giving young referees the opportunity to get on field experience. This training is offered to our referees for free with a grant from Utah Youth Soccer. This is an exciting opportunity to learn what referees do and how to earn some income.

If you would like to become a referee with WJYS then follow these steps to get registered:

  1. Submit your interest by completing the West Jordan Youth Soccer Referee Interest Form
  2. Go to the IREF Website to register for the IREF training course. Be sure to select West Jordan when registering so that IREF can route the notice of completion to the right league. 
  3. Complete the training modules.
  4. Upon completion, the Referee Director will be able to contact you regarding next steps.



Q: How do I apply to become a referee with WJYS?
A: Submit your information on the West Jordan Youth Soccer Referee Interest Form and the Referee Director will reach out to you shortly.

Q: How much to referees at WJYS get paid?
A1: For U9 – U11 = $20 per game
A2: U13 = $25 per game in the Fall and $30 per game in the Spring
A3: U15 - HS = $30 per game
A4: Assistant Referees (U15 and HS only) = $15 per game

Q: What is the minimum age to be a referee?
A: We give young referees a chance to develop and will take you as young as 10 years old. You may referee a game up to the age group younger than you. For example, a 10-year-old can referee a U9 game.

Q: What equipment do I need to be a referee?
A: It is expected that each referee will provide their own referee shirt, black socks, black shorts, a whistle, and a stopwatch. There are several places online where you can find this equipment.

Q: Is there training available to become a referee?
A: Yes. WJYS partners with IREF to train our referees. This training is required before starting as a referee and annually thereafter. This training comes in the form of online modules which records completion. 

Q: When can I take the IREF training?
A: Training is open a few weeks before the start of each season (Spring and Fall). 

Q: How many games can I expect to referee in a season?
A: This depends on how many referees we have in the pool and varies season by season.

Q: How do I schedule games to referee:
A: WJYS uses Stack Officials to schedule games and process payments. You will need to download the Stack Officials app or view the Stack Officials website.

Q: What do I do if I have to cancel a game I was scheduled for?
A: If a conflict arises then you must decline that game in Stack Officials.  

Q: Are there different rules for different age groups:
A: Yes. Rules can be found under the Coach's Corner menu. Click on the age group you are refereeing
