Travel Referee

In order to become a PA West Travel Referee (Division 4, 5 and 6), you must a) be 14 years or older at the start of the season, b) get certified through PA West and c) complete the background check requirements.  Please see the link below for information from PA West on how to become or re-certify as a referee.

Due to a state law change, background checks are mandatory for all referees (regardless of age).  Please be aware that there is a fee associated with each background check.  We are  investigating how we can reimburse referees that are associating themselves with the NA Soccer Club.

Step 1: Act 034 - Criminal Background Check
Step 2: Act 151 - Child Abuse Background Check
Step 3: Act 114 - FBI Fingerprint <== Choose "Pennsylvania Department of Human Services" (in lieu of the FBI Fingerprint check, minors need to fill out the affidavit and have it notarized)
Step 4: After receiving the clearances (may take a week or two), scan each type of clearance into a separate .pdf file.  You should end up with three (3) .pdf files.
Step 5: Go to the PA West Affinity Risk Management Website and upload the .pdf files (instructions are located on the PA West Risk Management Site).
Step 6: Please e-mail a copy of the .pdf files to [email protected] for the clubs records.
