Training for New Referees

If you are 13 years of age or older, become a certified referee in 2021!

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 complete the USSF Certification and all training requirements detailed below.

New referees will need to attend a USSF Certification course and become certified in order to referee in the 2021 season. This includes paying a registration fee.

The training course for new referees includes:
1) Self-paced 5 hours of online training
2) 4 hours of classroom instruction and
3) Participation in our local preseason on-field training (Date TBD)

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.

Are you interested in getting all of your referee fees payed for, as well as getting a free referee uniform? 

Do you fit any of the following qualifications?

 Between the ages of 13 and 16 or 24 years old or older
 Must be a NEW referee… no returning officials are eligible
 Must have an active account on the MNSRC website
 Cannot have attended a new referee class yet… if not enrolled prior to this, not eligible

If you are interested, please contact Morgan MacLean by March 30th to get more instructions for this great opportunity.

2020 Classroom Session for USSF Certification has been cancelled at this time. Information will be forthcoming for the 2021 season classes.

If you are under the age of 13 and still wish to become a referee please contact Morgan MacLean at the email below to receive more information in becoming an “Apprentice” for the upcoming Fall League in 2020.
