Referees are as critical to the success of our club and all our programs.

Please take the time to explore our Referee section refer to it often to make sure you’re up to date on referee news ,clinics and other pertinent referee information.
and our Club Head Referee will make every effort to provide you with the training internally

You will continue to be supported by the OSU throughout the season by our Club Head Referee.

Being a referee gives you a great opportunity to learn decision making and practice your people skills. OSU hopes you have fun refereeing and at the same time, earn some extra money. 


Our Goals for this summer:

  • Further develop the mentoring/assessment program.

  • Providing quality referee training through an initial OSA clinic and through a program of regular development meetings
  • Implement an “on-call” system to reduce referee no-shows to 1% or less;
  • Considering concerns and complaints received about referees, players, coaches and spectators and taking notice of ideas that can improve the way we referee;
  • Giving most work to the referees who display the preferred behaviors;
  • Continue paying referees fairly and promptly;
  • Fostering a state of mind in referees that balances applying rules with the satisfaction of helping others learn and have fun;
  • By sharing our referee goals with coaches and making our expectations for their support and encouragement clear in advance of the season.
