Est. 1961

The Shore Soccer Officials Association (SSOA) was organized and chartered in 1961 to officiate high school soccer matches at all levels throughout Monmouth and Ocean Counties.  This dedicated group of men and women help to advance the game of soccer in the Shore Area, to provide competent officials for all contests, to promote the highest standards of professionalism, and to encourage fair play and sportsmanship among players, parents, coaches, and fans.  Our members are respected throughout the Shore Area and throughout the state as well-trained, impartial, and competent.

CURRENT UPDATES


Reminder to all officials:


Once the season starts make sure you are there a minimum of 15 minutes before kickoff.


Home uniforms:  White shirts, solid white socks.  

Any school that does not meet the uniform policy MUST have a letter from NJSIAA stating they are exempt from the policy for one game or a week.  If they do not posses such a  letter of authorization from NJSIAA play the game and report the infraction to Chuck Hunnewell and myself via e-mails.


We are also in the process of firming up the fees for Middle and Grammar schools.  Once we have the final solution we will let you know.
