Training for New Referees

If you are 13 years of age or older, become a certified referee in 2020!

If you are a returning referee, please head to for directions on how to re-certify.

In order to referee, all new referees need to follow the USSF Grade 8 certification track and complete all training requirements detailed below.

New referees will need to attend a USSF Grade 8 course and become USSF certified in order to referee in the 2020 season. This includes paying a registration fee.

The training course for new referees includes:
1) Self-paced 8 hours of online training
2) 8 hours of classroom instruction and
3) Participation in our local preseason on-field training

Students must finish all components and pass a short test to complete certification.
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.

2020 Classroom Session for USSF Grade 8 Certification will be posted in January.
