Call for Referees!

TRFSA is looking for referees for the 2020 soccer season. We cannot host home games without referees, and we currently do not have enough referees for home games.

TRFSA will reimburse referee training costs once you referee 1 game for us. You must be 13 or older to referee.

Update from TRFSA concerning the Covid-19 and 2020 soccer season:

The TRFSA soccer board wanted to reach out to all of our soccer players and families to update you on the 2020 soccer season status. We are meeting weekly to discuss our options for the upcoming season and diligently working behind the scenes to support our program.

With the governor extending the Stay-At-Home order and MYSA's official Return-To-Play date is June 1st, we are looking at a tentative start date of June 1st, assuming orders are not extended and group gatherings are allowed at that time. However, the Northland MECC complex is closed to play or practice on any of its facilities for the 2020 summer. Additionally, Franklin Middle School is not accepting registrations for any of its facilities (indoor or outdoor) until the governor allows group gatherings. This puts us in a tough position since we rely on these facilities to practice and play at.

The board will meet again May 18th to review the governor's orders. We hope to have a better idea of what the 2020 soccer season will be at that time.

We thank you all for your patience and understanding during this time.

Our recreational players are ages 5-8 and play two nights a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Scores are not kept. Players are coached by volunteer parent/coaches and practices last for roughly 1 hour.
