Scrimmages & Friendlies

NJ Youth Soccer defines a friendly or scrimmage as any soccer-related event taking place in New Jersey in which all participants (players and coaches) are in possession of valid/current US Youth Soccer/NJ Youth Soccer passes, and the event is not a scheduled US Youth Soccer/NJ Youth Soccer league or competition (e.g. sanctioned tournament) match. Referee coverage may be utilized for these events, but any referees used must be currently US Soccer registered and must be procured via a certified NJSRC registered assignor. Read online.
