Membership is open to any individual interested in officiating interscholastic soccer. It is preferred that you have a current certification(s) with U.S. Soccer, the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS), or the National Intercollegiate Soccer Officials Association (NISOA). If your certifications are not current, previous experience refereeing soccer is acceptable as CSOA will help you get certified.
The specific qualification policies for VHSL include:
- An individual must be 18 years of age or a high school graduate to register to officiate interscholastic contests.
- A high school senior who is at least 17 years of age may register with CSOA but cannot officiate at the high school level.

- Transfer officials must provide written proof that they have passed an exam in their previous state for the current season. (Email confirmation is acceptable.)
