Toronto Soccer Association

Referee Advancement

The Toronto Soccer Association is focused on the education, development and advancement of our Match Officials.

In order to clarify opportunities for officiating within our District, we have created the "Referee Advancement" section. This section will highlight the grading requirements for TSA Leagues as well as the process and activities required in order to be eligible to officiate in these games and beyond.
