Lane County Soccer Referees Association (LCSRA), was formed in 1982 to service the game of soccer in Eugene. As the years have gone by, LCSRA has grown and become one of the strongest associations in the state of Oregon. We are proud of who we are and work hard to continue to be one of the best associations in the state. Game assignments are normally made through the Oregon Soccer Central (OSC) website.
Read through the information on our site. Hopefully, any questions you might have will be covered. If not, please do not hesitate to ask any current member or contact the commissioner (Jonathan Siegle, Email me!). Remember, we are a team, and must all work together on or off the playing field. We hope your refereeing experience will be positive and most of all FUN!!

The referee pay system for Oregon Soccer Central was updated in January 2021. Direct deposits now come from S-Pay, Inc. New W9 forms are required for everyone. See Announcements at OSC for more information.
