OYSA’s Commitment

Oregon Youth Soccer Association is committed to fostering an educational environment to allow referees at all levels develop.

Consistent and constant referee education is a key priority in OYSA’s mission. We rely on a statewide team of instructors, mentors and coaches to share their knowledge and experiences.
OYSA partners with The Oregon Referee Committee and US Soccer to provide registered officials to all levels; recreational and competitive.
