For New Referees, EYSA recommends: 8 Piece USSF Starter Kit from WinnersSportswear for $50 or 7 Piece Men's USSF Starter Kit or 7 Piece Women's USSF Starter Kit for $37.55 from OfficialSports.
Optional Equipment includes:
Data Wallet to help keep your score card dry. (You don't need "Report Forms", just a piece of paper to record the score)
Flipping Coin, but a quarter works fine.
Flags, but you won't need them until you are a center ref for a game needing ARs. This probably won't happen until you are in your second or, most likely, third year of ref'ing.
Bag to carry your extra equipment, but most people have bags they can use.
For referees who want to try out being a referee and plan on officiating only the U08-U09 recreational games, EYSA doesn't require official uniforms. You can referee with just a T-Shirt, Whistle and Sports Watch with stop watch functionality.
We recommend buying a sports watch from Amazon.com or Target or other retailer. They can be found cheaper at these locations and are just as good.
