MYSA League Referee requirements for check-in and game scoring:

  • Referees MUST use their affinity login to access the digital player card and scoring mobile web app.
  • Referees should search for games using the game number, check-in teams and report scores and all cards/ejections after the game through the app. No more paper forms!
  • Why do we require a login to report scores? A referee’s Affinity login is tied to the fact that they have an approved background check. MYSA values player safety and one part of that is requiring an approved background check from all of its adult participants. If your referee says that they do not have an Affinity login, that should be a red flag that they do not have a background check and they should NOT be refereeing.

Game Reports (Required)

Referees must report MYSA game scores through the MYSA Affinity Sports System. MYSA highly recommends that Clubs and Referee Assignors approve Referee payments after confirming game scores have been properly reported.

Following each game, please have the assigned game number, game rosters (home and away) which show player check-ins, any discipline and final score before you login to report the game and then access your Referee account, (create your account or login) by going to: http://mn-ussf.sportsaffinity.com/reg/index.asp.

Minnesota State Referee Committee

The Minnesota State Referee Committee (SRC) is responsible for certifying and re-certifying referees and referee assignors in Minnesota, and for the development of instructors and assessors in Minnesota. A portion of the registration fee paid by each referee is used by the Minnesota SRC to recruit, retain and develop referees, instructors and assessors.

The main communication vehicle used by the Minnesota SRC is its website:  www.minnesotasrc.com. This website lists instructions on how referees and referee assignors can become certified (or re-certified) and provides many valuable resources for referees, referee assignors, referee instructors and referee assessors.

Become a Referee

If you want to know how you can become a certified soccer referee, go to the Minnesota State Referee Committee’s website at www.minnesotasrc.com and click on the “New Referee Info” button along the left side of the home page. This will outline the six simple steps it takes to become a referee.

The SRC also offers Referee Academies. The beginner academy offers high level mentoring and field training. The advanced academy offers high level mentoring, field training and classroom sessions. For more information, please contact the State Youth Referee Administrator (SYRA).

Once you have completed those steps, contact your soccer club or clubs in your area to receive game assignments [MYSA Member Clubs]. Select the club in your area, and click the “Club Contacts” link to display information for that club’s referee assignor and/or referee coordinator.
