LAW 6: Assistant Referees/Line Assistants

When no assistant referees are at the field at game time, center referees may appoint line assistants. A line assistant’s role is to signal the ball “out of play” when it crosses the touchline. To serve, line assistants must be currently registered and affiliated with Mass Youth Soccer as either an adult or a player. Line assistants may not be pre-assigned and may not be paid.
