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 www.minnesotasrc.com 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.
Information regarding the 2021 referee trainings will be posted as soon as we receive the information from the State Referee Committee. Check back in early February 2021 for more information.
Below are the 2020 requirements to give you an idea of the time commitment it takes to become a referee.
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.
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 2021.
