Roots Soccer League Serving Western MA

Mentorship Program

When an official arrives at a Roots Soccer League game, they are the face of the league - both teams are representing their respective clubs, the field belongs to that town but the referee has been sent to represent the competition. With this in mind it's in the leagues own interest to invest resources into recruiting, supporting and retaining officials by providing opportunities for personal development and advancement.

Our Mentorship program has three simple goals:

  • To Develop our referees
  • To Retain more Officials
  • To Give Officials a Pathway to Higher Level Games

To Achieve these goals:

  • The league has a paid, full qualified, Mentor at all 5v5 games - this is the starting point for 99% of our officials.
  • The league typically has a 7v7 Jamboree event on our opening weekend each season We commit to hire enough Mentors to have every game/official watched/evaluated for their first games.
  • We continue to expand our mentoring to create "training hubs" at local fields for second year officials.
