Yellow Wristbands


Adult misconduct towards sports officials is becoming more prevalent in society.  To draw attention to and help put a stop to this behavior, North Carolina Youth Soccer (NCYSA) and the North Carolina Soccer Referees Association (NCSRA) have instituted the Yellow Wrist Band Initiative for Minor Referees.

For our young, inexperienced Referees to become more experienced and better Referees, they must be able to officiate games without intimidation, fear, and/or abuse.

A Referee wearing the Yellow Wrist Band as shown below is a minor.  We expect adults to show the encouragement and respect the minor deserves as the minor learns their craft.
