We are always looking for new referees age 13 and above.  We invite you to learn about the game of soccer and how to officiate a soccer game.  Our program uses a developmental pathway for referees to help improve their skills while gaining experience.  We utilize a mentorship program with graded introduction into the referee role with regular feedback and support.  Refereeing is a great opportunity to help create an environment where every player has the right to develop and compete in a fair, fun and safe environment. 



  • Create a USSF Learning Center account and register for our next course here:


  • Registration costs $45 and covers the cost of the training and US Soccer Referee Fees.  Plan on 4-6 hours total to finish the online course modules (done through the Learning Center).  We recommend not waiting - start now.

  • Complete the background check and pay the associated $30 fee.  There are a few basic questions to answer here - very straightforward

  • Complete the in-person field training.  Our next class is planned for 3/12/22 at 10a.

  • Be sure to save your registration receipts - you can turn these fees back to our club for reimbursement once you referee 3 games with us.


Candidates should bring the following items: 

  • Clothing appropriate to run around, play soccer, and be comfortable based on the weather

  • Any referee gear already purchased or available – whistle and/or flags.

  • Something to write with and on

  • A device with the IAFB app: with the current laws of the game. A printed version would also work (
