Interested in becoming a referee?

Being a soccer referee takes work, skill and responsibility. Knowledge of the game and fitness are basic requirements to be an effective official. In return for working games, you are paid a game fee established by the level of game officiated.

Referees can pick and choose what times they are available or not available to pick up games. This allows flexibility to work as many or as few games as you would like. You will be assigned games by our referee assignor Mike Buman and you can accept or decline the assignments.

There is an online portion to the certification class so be sure to give yourself a few weeks to go complete the online modules which must be completed prior to the 8 hour 1 day certification class.
