Madeira Youth Soccer is a purely VOLUNTEER administrated organization with a goal of providing quality services to the children in Madeira School District and those attending St. Gertrude. In any given season, we have around 450 players in the program.
All Cincinnati Hills SAY Soccer referees are required to be certified every year.
The 2017 certification (new and returning referees) will involve three key elements; on-line course training, classroom training and on-field training.
You MUST register first at your district (please see Referee Registration) and then at the League (links and instructions are included within the Madeira Referee Registration).
