Welcome to the NPYSL Referee page!

Here you will find various links for NPYSL Referee Info.

Please NOTE:  
ALL Referees must complete EITHER the NFHS 'Concussion in Sports' OR the CDC Concussion 'HeadsUp' training every 3 years.  We currently recommend the CDC class due to ease of use and time to complete.  You MUST carry a copy of your Completion Certificate with you to all games AND the league must have an up-to-date copy on file.

I WILL be checking!
Any questions, please contact Dave McDermott, the NPYSL Referee Coordinator, at [email protected].

Thanks,
NPYSL
