The Shore Soccer
Officials Association

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.

The intent of the SSOA Executive Board is to provide the new SSOA official with a “personal support system: to ease their transition into the ranks of high school soccer officiating.  By making their early officiating experiences positive ones, it is hoped the new official will enjoy a lengthy and successful high school officiating career.
