Referee Clinics


Clinics being held for Classic League are listed at the bottom of page. 

1.   It is very important that future referees register soon, NOT TO WAIT until the week of. 

2.    Get the online portion done well in advance of the clinic date. It takes up to 8 hours to complete.

3.   Information goes out to all who are on the roster starting 7-10 in advance. You can’t receive information if you are not on the roster.

4.   Once you complete the entire program, contact Susan Terry to let her know that you are a registered official and available for assignments.

The Classic League referee program needs more reliable, hardworking people to join the referee team.

We are glad you want to become a USSF Referee. Being a referee is very fun and rewarding.

The 2023 Registration process is open.

Once one registers, completes both requirements (online lessons and attend an in-person clinic) they will earn their 2023 USSF Referee badge.

A 2023 badge will allow the new referee ALL of 2023.

How to Become a USSF Grassroots Referee

Requirements - You must be 13 or older.

There is a two-part process that must be completed to become a licensed USSF Grassroots Referee.

Sign up for a Grassroots online course. You will pay the fee ($80) when you sign up.

Part 1 - Sign up for the Grassroots Online Lessons.

There are 9 modules in the online portion. All 9 modules must be completed in full before you can select an in-person clinic. This part takes approximately 8 hours to complete.

Part 2 - Select an in-person clinic to attend.

Once you complete the entire online lessons, you'll be able to select an in-person clinic to go to. You will see the words - ONLINE LESSONS COMPLETED highlighted in green to know that you can select the in-person clinic you wish to attend.

The in-person clinic is 3.5 hours. This is the field session done outdoors.

Lots of important information is given to all attendees at the in-person clinics - who you will work for, how to get games, where to get uniforms, etc.

Please note – the list of in-person clinics is fluid. There are approximately 20 clinics offered in the months of January, February, March – August, September, and in the months of April, May, Oct about 5 or 6.

You must complete both parts in order to become a referee.
