Thinking of becoming a referee?
If you are 14 or older...
New referees, and returning 1st year referees who began refereeing in August 2013 will need to attend a Grade 8 course, become USSF certified and pay the USSF registration fee in order to referee in the 2014 Spring-Summer season.
The training program includes: 1) an online component, (which includes viewing a required concussion training video); 2) 8 hrs of classroom instruction; and 3) participation in our local pre-season on-field training. Students must finish all components and pass a 100-question test to complete certification. There are three classroom date options for persons wanting to become USSF Grade 8 referees.
Referees must register with the USSF and pay their registration fees online BEFORE they can start online instruction and sign up for their classroom session.
2014 Classroom sessions for persons planning to certify as USSF Grade 8 for 2014:Sunday, April 6 8:30AM – 5:00PMOR... Saturday, April 12 8:30AM – 5:00PM
Students will receive clinic location information by email after completing pre-clinic requirements.
** On-field training dates and options will be sent to referees who are officially registered.
NEW referee candidates need to email their name, address, phone, email address and birth date to: firstname.lastname@example.org Once we receive your information, we will email detailed instructions how to access the web site, complete your online registration and clinic sign-up. Registrations and fees can not be accepted at clinics.
Please register early because clinic space is limited. When maximum room capacity is reached, registrations must be closed. Clinic locations and final class details will be sent to new referees by email after online registration and clinic sign-ups are completed.
