Stow Youth Soccer and Lancasater Youth Soccer are proud to develop their young referees as well as our soccer players.  

These youngsters learn the basics of refereeing and after finishing the training part of the program, they will officiate the in-town U8 games.

This training begins in August before the fall season and will continue into the Spring season.  

Note: Limited number of enrollments are open for the RIT program



  • Candidate must be 12 years of age and under 14 years of age

  • Candidates will officiate a scrimmage held during the U8 teams practices before being assigned to games.
