Welcome to the North Shore Youth Soccer Association (NSYSA) Referee Community!

Congratulations on becoming a member of the North Shore Youth Soccer Association (NSYSA) referee family. There are more than 220 small-sided referees in NSYSA, and that number grows every year. In addition, there are also more than 130 Youth/District/Regional/Provincial referees actively refereeing youth games in NSYSA. When you step onto the field for your first match, you may think that you are all alone. But the truth is that you have a very large caring and committed referee family behind you.
