Our Mission

 HSSO's purpose is to provide officials who will enforce the rules of soccer as outlined by the National Federation of High Schools and CHSAA; who will provide a safe environment for every player – regardless of age, skill, or experience; and who will represent the highest standards of the game.

HSSO is also dedicated to the continuing development of soccer referees. We provide opportunities for our members to meet and discuss soccer, refereeing, and related matters. We also provide ongoing training to include critical and developmental assessments for our members.

Officials in all contests should be knowledgeable, professional, and respectful of coaches.
